    Queer Talk: Taking a look at Gold Star (short film) by director Karla Legaspy

    in LGBT

    This film addresses the need to bring awareness of LGBTQ children and youth within Latino American communities. It deals with homophobia from a yet unavailable perspective in our communities: that of a young, Latina girl. Films addressing homophobia often center teenagers or adults as protagonist, but the experiences of LGBTQ children remain invisible. The film provides young girls with artistic options in which to see themselves reflected. By focusing the film on precocious and precious children, we hope it provides a space for us as Latino Americans to teach tolerance and acceptance of LGBTQ children and adults. Ultimately, it is a story of dreams, hopes and friendship.


    This film deals with themes of identity, coming out, anti-bullying, activism and friendship. What makes this film very special is that all of the characters are Chicana females.  "I am committed to casting all Xicana actors and having as many women in leadership and creative roles behind the scenes." - Karla Legaspy

    Why Do Black Mothers Beat Their Sons

    in Women

    Toya Graham, the mother caught on video smacking around her 16-year-old son during the Baltimore uprising was hailed by many as "Mother of the Year." Activist Michaela Angela Davis writes, "It's a sad day when a traumatized, terrorized, desperate mother beating and cursing her child becomes 'mom of the year.'                                                   


    Is Toya Graham, this mother of six, a hero...or is she an abuser? Was this an act of love...or abuse? Was this tough love, or something else? Do black single mothers have a license to beat and brutalize their sons to prevent them from becoming a statistic? 


    What about the mothers who yank, slap, punch their little black boys, do they deserve praise for "keeping their boys in line"?  


    Jackie Credle, a mother of two, says she was once the angry mother raising a son. She now regrets beating her son. Jackie shares her story, raw, uncut, honest real talk on She Struts Radio, Thursday, May 28, 2015 at 6:30pm ET as we continue our month-long conversation about mothering.
