Undoing Borders: Queer Discussion on Im/migration and Criminalization

Undoing Borders: Queer Discussion on Im/migration and Criminalization

Essex, Li and Molly joined Earful of Queer live in studio to talk about their tour and their zine. The interview was followed by a short set by DJ BootyKlap.

Undoing Borders is a collective writing project that comes out of the Migrant Justice Work Group of San Francisco Pride at Work/HAVOQ (The Horizontal Alliance of Very Organized Queers). We first started organizing together in 2007 when a group of us formed a contingent to the US/Mexico No Borders Camp in Calexico/Mexicali. That summer, at an event to raise money for our trip south, we were asked for the first time a question we would hear again and again for years: What does being queer have to do with borders?
This document was born out of action and conversation, and our hope is that it will continue to live there. We’ve been sharing it with all of the incredible people we organize with here in the Bay Area, but we’d also like a chance to get feedback from people working in the many different locations and contexts across our border regions and the interior. Nothing beats a face-to-face conversation, so we’re taking this manifesto on the road!
This interview was done one month into their tour when they stopped in Guelph, Ontario.
