My research explores how structures and institutions shape the health and well-being of queer and trans youth, both within the United States and in Latin America. Having spent six years conducting community-based research in the Detroit Metro Area, I have been witness to the ways in which poverty,racism, homophobia and HIV stigma constrain individual opportunities and collective action in the lives of LGBT-identified youth, while simultaneously opening space for resilience and resistance.
