“Live your truth no matter what. Because of the truth I have survived. Because of the truth have become strong. Because of the truth I am who I am.”
In this episode of Jotxs y recuerdos, you’ll listen to Kimberly Sanchez, a trans woman from San Juan, Texas, share her story.
For Locutorreando’s special inaugural episode, we present two conversations with some of our favorite badasses. Dani Marrero Hi of Aquí Estamos & Neta RGV spoke to us about fighting for queer and trans rights on the border, the perils of the nonprofit world and what to do when mass media fails us. We also sat down with Victoria Ruiz of bilingual punk band Downtown Boys and talked about performing for white audiences, Downtown Boy’s recent successful campaign against SXSW, and why it’s shitty to be dismissed as an identity politician.
Our conversation with Dani begins at 11:30; our discussion with Victoria starts at 64 minutes.
