‘We Are the South’ Rises with LGBTQ Racial Justice Activists

Meet LGBTQ racial justice activists in the South.

By Julianne Hing Oct 03, 2014

LGBTQ activists at the intersection of race, place, class, sexuality and so much more working toward racial justice in the South? No, you’re not dreaming. This week, the Better Together Southern Leadership and Action Cohort, a network of eight organizations gathered by Colorlines’ publisher Race Forward, launched We Are the South. It is a photo campaign highlighting the people at the center of this week’s launch. On social media, #WeAretheSouth and #SomosElSur amplified those activists’ experiences.

Here now, a roundup of some of the photos activists shared via wearethesouth.org.
