Rad Reading: "Q&A" by Alok Vaid-Menon
For pride month, we will strive to highlight queer voices. This beautifully written essay is about Alok Vaid-Menon's experiences with misgendering and other violences towards non-binary people. It also raises important questions: from whom do queer people seek recognition and why? Why is being “recognized” by the government - or someone in power - become a measure of success of the movement?
