Sylvia Rivera and Alynda Segarra

This week, we continue our celebration of the somewhat controversially named Hispanic Heritage Month with stories about the contributions of two LGBTQ Latinos.

  • First, our friends from the Gender Reveal podcast share an interview with queer Nuyorican musician Alynda Segeera of Hurray for the Riff Raff
  • Then, Making Gay History revisits a conversation with the fierce trans activist Sylvia Rivera.
