Welcome to the UndocuQueer Book Project web site.
Here you can find the latest news on the project and about the incredible people who will be featured on the project.
There are nearly 40 people whose stories will be featured on the project. Each story will be written by the person in the intersection of the undocumented and queer movements. In addition, there will be chapters dealing with specific issues, including a history of the movements, terminology, history of the intersection movement in Chicago, and a special chapter on the unique challenges of Asian/Pacific Islander undocumented immigrants, particularly for those who also identify as LGBTIQ.
The books are the launching point for all the work we hope to accomplish because it shares the personal stories of those who are in the intersection of the immigration and LGBTIQ movements in their own words. We believe that the sharing of the stories is the most powerful tool in mobilizing those in the intersection and all those who are interested in social justice.
