AWI Voices With Impact presents: A Foot in Both Worlds
“How “white” do I need to act in this environment?” “How much of my queer self is safe to show here?” “Which of my identities are “okay” today?” For racialized queer people, the experience of simply existing in a world where “normal” is synoymous with “white and straight” can be both confusing and exhausting. In this session, filmmakers Campbell X and Hao Zhou discuss the human condition at the intersection of race, sexuality, and mental health.
