Making Queer History: Connecting our queer history to our queer present.

Carlos Járegui

Will and Laura talk about Carlos Jáuregui and the impact of his life. We also discuss the importance of human connection in political movements and how loving a country should affect your politics. We recommend the movie Portrait of a Lady on Fire.

You can find the documentary on Jáuregui here, it is in Spanish but YouTube provides auto-translated closed captions. 

His biography, written by Mabel Bellucci, is called "Orgullo - Carlos Jáuregui, una biografía política", or "Pride - Carlos  Jáuregui , a political biography". You can find information about it here,  but we could not find an English version.
