Last week, The Latinegrxs Project and Women of Color Sexual Health Network hosted the first ever Twitter chat on Afrxlatinx sexuality.
The conversation brought up so much for so many of us including how colorism relates to sex and sexuality in our communities and families; sexualization of Latinegrxs and Latinxs by media, in tourism, and by each of us individually as well; need for services and education; rape and sexual assault on trans and cis Latinegrxs; and need for self care, to take pleasure in ourselves despite what society or friends think!
