When Proposition 8 (legislation banning gay marriage) passed in California a few years ago, a large portion of blame was put onto communities of color as to why such a homophobic piece of legislation could pass. It has been common within media to refer to people of color as often being more homophobic than their white counterparts. What exactly is homophobia and how is it expressed? Is it more difficult to be gay/lesbian/bi/trans/queer as a person of color? Are people of color more homophobic? This session will open a dialogue about identity and culture as it relates to the acceptance of LGBTQ people in communities of color and in the greater community at large. Led by the Program Administrator of the LGBTQ Student Center, J. Mason.
