Here’s Why We Should Think Before Calling Queer People Marginalized

Watch NYLON’s 2017 Pride Panel

by Hafeezah Nazim

Last week, NYLON and our incredible guests took over The VNYL’s Black Rose Room for our Pride Panel.

Moderated by our senior producer Daniel Huskey, the panel featured author Gabby Rivera, model-actress Carmen Carrera, Discwoman's Yulan Grant, model Leyna Bloom, Chromat's Becca McCharen-Tran, and NYLON's global editor-in-chief Gabrielle Korn engaged in conversation about queer voices, history, representation, and intersectionality in the mainstream media. 

"I'm so tired of the same conversations," said Rivera. "Where it's like, 'Oh, brown people are marginalized, black people are marginalized, trans people are marginalized,' how do we fix it? Break down these systems, let's talk about it, disrupt the power!"
