This second video in the series profiles a featured Turnout Staten Island artist at the Alice Austen House Museum, a national site of LGBTQ History. The Staten Island L'Unicorns, performing and hosting Pride Month Fiestas this June, were the first Latinx LGBTQ+ advocacy group in Staten Island, founded to help undocumented Transgender women in the community. L’Unicorns have created a safe space for all LGBTQ Latinx immigrants, where members can share information and access education, cultural opportunities, and critical resources.
Creator of the group, Alejandra Moran, interviews on the importance of visibility and using public space as a vehicle for cultural preservation and social change.
