Liliana Macias is a DACAmented Mexican Queer activist and scholar. As a scholar, she focuses on the histories of queer Latinx people in Chicago. Particularly, how segregation in the city influenced how, when, and where Latinx queer people create culture when facing exclusion from Boystown, the LGBTQ+ enclave recognized by the city of Chicago. For this event, Liliana will discuss examples of these complex queer Latinx histories, why it is important that they be recognized, and why queer solidarity needs to break neighborhood borders.
