This session will show how immigrant and TGNC youth and communities are joining forces to build liberatory narratives. Their stories resist xenophobic and transphobic tropes in dominant culture. Youth producers from GAP will feature their music video “Borders & Binaries Rejects” and speak about their process for building community power through media. National partners will speak on the impact their media has had on culture shifting xenophobic and transphobic narratives and attacks.
