[SDCPJ] UndocuQueer in San Diego

UndocuQueer in San Diego

Friday, May 24, 2013
7:00pm until 9:00pm
Centro Cultural de la Raza
2004 Park Blvd., San Diego, California 92101


Join the San Diego DREAM Team and Canvass for a Cause for a local discussion on UNDOCUQUEER, the real story of queer immigrants here in San Diego.

How are the stories of coming out as queer and coming out as undocumented similar? How are they different? What are factors that make it hard to organize here in San Diego, and how do we face that challenge? How does this affect families? And what would TRUE queer-inclusive immigration reform look like? Join us at El Centro Cultural de la Raza to hear some answers and continue building the movement!

WHY DO WE USE THE WORD QUEER?
Although originally used as a slur and offensive word, QUEER has since been reclaimed by the LGBTQIA community. It represents being outside of the heteronormative mindset or the gender binary. It is often seen as an umbrella term for those who do not identify as "straight" or "cisgender," including pansexual, bisexual, gender queer and other sexualities and identities.

¿POR QUE USAMOS LA PALABRA "QUEER"?
Aunque originalmente utilizado como un insulto y una palabra ofensiva, QUEER ya que ha sido reclamado por la comunidad LGBTQIA. Representa estar fuera de la mentalidad heteronormative o el binario de género. Se ve a menudo como un término general para aquellos que no se identifican como "recta" o "cisgénero", incluyendo pansexual, bisexuales, no conformista a base de género y otras sexualidads y identidades.
