“We’re Afro-Latin, queer, vegan, hip-hop artists in the U.S.” Prendes says. “At the end of the day we are by ourselves because no one shares those identities with us.” If they go to queer events, they may be the only Latinas. And if they go to queer events specifically for minorities, they may be the only immigrants speaking Spanish.
“We are queers for real,” Prendes says. “Even in the queer community, we are the queerest of the queer.”
