Thank you for the moment of silence, Professor Caparas. Seeing the names of the victims led to fears I had about people of color being yet again victims of an American mass shooting. We need the solidarity and community you offer in Queer and Now, and thank you to all the organizers for creating this event and space for affirming LGBTQI as well of communities of color.

One thing to urge you all to think about, is that much of that stigma that the Gay community had in the 80’s, is now being applied to the Transgender community. Right now, 33 different states have either passed, or are working on, multiple anti-Trans bills, which puts many in danger.

Emaline Louise
02:57:05
“Slow it down” yes!!! I agree completely, meet people where they are at and work with them in what they need. Solving the smaller problems can lead to the bigger problems being solved as well.
Emaline Louise
02:57:25
Oh yes

02:57:42

and uplifting the vibration needs to be our priority, ours and others
Alicia Mullens (she/her)
03:02:47
We also need to acknowledge that people grow… There are things I’ve done in the past that I feel ashamed of myself for. One thing that has worried me about “cancel culture” is that it, when not done right, can easily throw out the baby with the bathwater.
Adriana/Ohlone (Ella/Her/Yeh)

being disingenious has no room in creating amor and truth and comunidad

The people that I find to be most inspiring these days are the fellow young people that are working towards positive change, like students on the panel, Greta Thunberg, and the students that are fighting against gun violence after experiencing a school shooting. Who are the people today that inspire you to keep moving forward?
Adriana/Ohlone (Ella/Her/Yeh)

accountability culture, love that
Alicia Mullens (she/her)
03:06:38
Accountability should be about growth for those who want to learn and grow, and punitive for those who would rather double-down on their mistakes rather than own them.
