Hi everyone, this episode I’m turning the mic over to Leo Valdes, a PhD student from Rutgers University. They’ve been working with the Voces Oral History Project at UT Austin and the Latino New Jersey Oral History Project, and recently have been conducting interviews w trans Latinx people about their experiences with Covid-19.
This interview is in Spanish, with short interludes narrated in English. Even if you are a monolingual English speaker, I encourage you to listen the best you can, and hear the emotion and clarity in Viviana's voice. Also, Leo's a great writer and their interludes are beautiful.
Additional music in this episode is from Blue Dot Sessions, and from Thalía's song "A Quien Le Importa."
