Minority Korner

Are you easily confused by terms like cultural appropriation, cisgender, toxic masculinity, twunk, black girl magic, and woke? Or maybe you’re tired of explaining terms like these and you need a community that gets you! Sounds like you need MINORITY KORNER! Nnekay & James dish out your weekly serving of pop culture, social commentary, nerdy stuff, politics, empowerment, celebrity feuds, zanny anecdotes, mispronunciation of most names, and things they left out of the history books, all from a perspective that’s Black, queer, and lady like! So come learn, laugh, and play! (Part of the Maximum Fun Network)

MK EP 3: The Tale of an Island and Pride. But not Island Pride cause things are F'd! (Dominican Republic, PRIDE, Library Conferences, The White House, Transphobia, Biphobia, Azelea Banks, Dan Savage, Sister Act, Ava Duvnray, more sound issues)


Nnekay went to a fancy library conference. The pride parade happened, where were the LGBT folks? The BET awards were eventful. Crazy things are going down in the Dominican Republic, but why? Yay we have gay marriage, but this pride season lets examine the divide around the LGBTQIA community specifically around transphobia, biphobia, and race. Who's going in the Korner this week? What is Ava DuVenray's next movie going to be? Iggy Azalea, Dan Savage, Sister Act, and more! (We're still battling sound issues- trial and error- thanks for keeping with us!)   Hispanola https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hispaniola   Dominican Republic and Haiti  http://fusion.net/story/156597/junot-diaz-and-edwidge-danticat-jointly-call-for-travel-boycott-of-the-dominican-republic/
