MK309: Don’t Mess With the Liberacos (Britney’s Testimony, MK Summer Rewind: History of the Pink Triangle, Black Amusement Parks of the Past)

Episode 309

2nd July 2021

We debrief the harrowing Britney Spears testimony. In summer fashion it’s time to rewind to some of our best korners relevant for post Pride month, and as we head into summer. First up, James leads us through an exploration of the history of the Pink Triangle, which takes us to Nazi Germany, and the treatment of homosexuals. Could this happen again? Is it? We also look at the power and influence of queer culture as evidenced in the documentary Paris is Burning. Then it’s suns out buns out for some summer time fun as Nnekay takes us to a journey to Amusement Park Past! She talks about three major amusement parks that were owned and for black people and all the glamour that occurred at these amazing spots.

Or maybe you’re tired of explaining terms like these and you need a community that gets you! Welcome to Minority Korner, where we take an introspective look at the world. through an intersectional lens. Join James: a queer, political, comedian, self proclaimed, sexy blerd (that’s Black Nerd) and each week he’s joined in the Korner by another fabulous minority tackling pop culture, the news, media, and history all with a little self care, and self love sprinkled throughout! It’s time to Learn, Laugh, and Play, right here at Minority Korner- because together: we’re the majority!
