Desmadre Podcast #003: Marco Castro-Bojorquez on being a Queer, Latinx immigrant-activist & filmmaker
< 1 day ago
Marco Castro-Bojorquez (@bojorquez) was born and raised in Sinaloa, Mexico. After being the target of a violent hate crime in Mexico, he fled to the US where he has spent the last twenty years of his life working as a community activist and educator in the LGBTQ and HIV+ immigrant community. Over the last few years, he has also emerged as a documentary filmmaker. His latest film, El Canto del Colibri, exploring the relationships between Latino immigrant fathers and their LGBTQ family members, has played at over fifteen film festivals including Frameline SF and Outfest LA. In this discussion, we dive into Marco's background and also try and tackle some of the misperceptions about the LGBTQ community by the Latinx community.
