This week we’re bringing you an unplanned episode in recognition of the massacre in Orlando. We’re devastated, and we hope that our discussion of what happened, its impact on us, and some of our mourning and healing process in these days since the attack might help you all with your healing as well.
We bring songs that have been part of our healing and mourning this week. We’ve also both have written and spoken about this attack on queer Latinx space on several outlets. As always, all music and links are below.
We hope you are holding your loved ones close queridxs, and taking care of yourselves during this tough time.
If you need more joy than sadness in your life right now, you can check out last week’s Queers! episode featuring six queer Latinx artists.
