Minority Korner

Are you easily confused by terms like cultural appropriation, cisgender, toxic masculinity, twunk, queer, black girl magic, and woke? Or maybe you’re tired of explaining terms like these and you need a community that gets you! Welcome to Minority Korner, where we take an introspective look at the world. through an intersectional lens. Join James: a queer, political, comedian, self proclaimed, sexy blerd (that’s Black Nerd) and each week he's joined in the Korner by another fabulous minority tackling pop culture, the news, media, and history all with a little self care, and self love sprinkled throughout! It’s time to Learn, Laugh, and Play, right here at Minority Korner- because together: we’re the majority! (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/
