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."

Certainly both groups have faced legislative attacks. Richard Fricker on Consortium News is only one of several recent writers to note what he calls a “surge of theocracy tinged with white racialism,” which he sees in a series of recent measures in Oklahoma.

But of course it’s not just Oklahoma.

Bill Resnick explores rising food prices and world hunger and what the UN and the major countries are (not) doing.
He also looks at climate change and Congress with a critique of
the very inadequate, indeed, counterproductive response. The bill being discussed subsidizes nuclear energy. Luz Maria Gordillo reviews Sex and the City, the movie. Frann Michel hosts a segment of the Well-Read Red on solidarities between LGBTQ and immigrant activism.  And we'll hear more music by Pink Martini and an exploration of their politics.
