Voices in Higher Education; LGBTQ Students of Color Focusing on Gay Latino Scholarship and research

Lorenzo Garcia, Researcher, San Francisco State UniversityMultidimensional identity and selective identity are key factors for LGBTQ students of color. Informed institutes and fluidity of campus resources are vital for this student population as revealed in Dr. Garcia’s research. Navigating campuses of higher learning for LGBTQ students of color requires that the institute listen to the voices which have been historically kept in the margins of our educational system due to heteronormative and homophobic practice and attitudes both in and out of the classroom. Dr. Garcia presents the personalized testimonios of six self-identified Gay Latino men and their respective experiences on campus.
