Undocuqueer

May 13, 2013 in inQueery

Being queer and undocumented, an individual might fear both domestic hatred and international persecution. Despite what should be universal human rights, being undocuqueer (both queer and undocumented) can result in the exclusion from both institutions and benefits guaranteed to heterosexual partners and citizens. Perhaps even scarier is the complicated (and often dangerous) reality of being queer in an immigrant’s original home.
