As a group, LGBTQIP2SAA+, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning, Queer, Intersex, Pansexual, Two-Spirit (2S), Androgynous and Asexual+, AKA the Rainbow Community, have traditionally been the least understood kinship in the US. However, their activism has led to changes that we are continuing to see with this newly elected administration. The 2020 Presidential debates, November elections, and 2021 installation of the President’s Cabinet bear witness to the decades of activism of the Rainbow Community.

In 2018, RACE TALKS hosted “CROSSING OVER: Transgender People of Color” where our speakers shared their transition journey. Today, we are re-visited by our former speakers who will share how the Rainbow Community’s activism has evolved; and how they, as BIPOC, Black, Indigenous, People of Color, are leading that (r)evolution.

Video of the live event will be available to view for 30 days after the event.
