Trans model Carmen Carrera tells OutQ’s Xorje Olivares that people who use the word ‘tranny’ don’t really care about its impact.
Language is a powerful tool that we all use to our advantage, especially within the LGBT community. Yet when it comes to hateful words, at what point do we begin to reclaim and embrace these terms that have historically been used against us? Or should we use them as tools to better educate an uninformed public? Join OutQ’s Xorje Olivares and guests like model Carmen Carrera as they debate anti-gay slurs and our sensibilities around them.
