Today's Well-read Red is Frann Michel's discussion of the relations between  queer and immigrant groups.  There are more  connections that you might have guessed, as they face parallel and overlapping obstacles.  One writer recommends as a principle governing the treatment of all of us "the right to travel and thrive, even across borders."
