There’s an insidious position that white radicals take in not wanting to invade space that isn’t theirs, but then they end up simply not attending any likeminded events run by or featuring people of color, masking their indifference and fear of being culturally inept/irrelevant in a non-white space with rationales like they just wanna be “respectful.
^^^ OMG! Yes!! ^^^
With ULP we organize a whole week of events for and by the Latin@ Queer community but explicitly open to all.
We say this EVERY TIME we talk to the press and yet queer white activists always always always tell me they didn’t attend to be “respectful of space”
