Check out the trailer for QTPOC Chat with Mia and Janani!
Clip 1 (White Fetish)
Janani: I’ve been processing my own white fetish for some time now. ..
Clip 2 (Pride Season)
Mia: White gay maleness was just oozing out of every possible orifice of the earth…
Clip 3 (The Term ‘Person of Color’)
Mia: Light-brown-washing all of it, so it’s all more palatable and you don’t actually have to think about individual experiences of different people within the group.
Clip 4 (‘Reverse-Racism’)
Mia: Every schmo motherfucker, who doesn’t know anything about anything, that’s their go-to, their first thing is ‘reverse-racism’.
Clip 5 (QPOC Peacock Syndrome)
Janani: I usually find myself being like, Oh my God, who is that girl taking up space in my identity, I’m supposed to be the extra special unicorn one!
Clip 6 (Racism in QTPOC Community)
Mia: Queer culture has just sort of taken as it will from black culture.
Clip 7 (White Women’s Tears)
Mia: Seriously, stop emailing us with your crying. It’s not…it’s not…it’s not okay.
