Debanuj DasGupta discusses the ways in which gender & sexuality have historically shaped US immigration policy. Debanuj will begin by discussing the Chinese Exclusion Act, followed by conversations about a series of restrictive legislation that were passed in order to regulate gender and sexuality through immigration procedures. Utilizing his own life narrative and immigration activist archives, Debanuj will highlight the present day intersections of HIV/LGBTQ and immigrant rights activism. This even is part of the One Book program and the Celebrating Latino Americans program.
