Two Spirit and Indigenous Queers
To be indigenous and queer is to live with a level of ambivalence: On the one hand, queer or two-spirited people have been traditionally revered by Native tribes. On the other, forced assimilation has allowed homophobia to take root. For queer natives, it’s a never ending push and pull.
In this episode, five queer people of native descent share a bit of their lives and experiences, including stories from Utah Public Radio, the Organist, StoryCorps and Northern Community Radio.
