Bread and Roses – Tamara Adrian, Cece McDonald and more!

In this installment of Bread and Roses you’ll hear Tamara Adrian speak about Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Intersex rights in Latin America, specifically in Venezuela at Amherst College’s Expanding LGBTQ rights event. Tamara Adrian is a lawyer, LGBTQI human rights activist and the first openly transgender person to be elected to the Venezuelan National Assembly. Also, clips of Cece McDonald and Joshua Allen’s keynote lecture from Hampshire College’s annual ASK for Social Justice is included. The theme for this year’s ASK event was BlackFemmesVsThe State. McDonald and Allen discussed violence and against Black femmes and Black Trans Liberation (trigger warning for rape and sexual assault in this portion of the show). Throughout today’s show, you’ll hear two songs by 4-time Grammy winning singer, India Arie. The first song is titled I Am Not My Hair and the second is Strength, Courage and Wisdom. Enjoy the show!
