Tune in to the latest UAlbany Student Stories podcast (Exploring the LGBTQ+ Experience and Allyship).  In this episode, UAlbany students Mia Cannizzo, Alexa Crespo, Arely Gonzalez Hernandez, and Bianca Zazzarini-Leon discuss the experiences of being members and allies of the LGBTQ+ community. The conversation explores navigating sexual identity and confronting biphobia. Furthermore, the conversation goes into detail about the transition to college life, with a more supportive system and safe space for the LGBTQ+ community, including the vibrancy of drag shows and pride parades. Mia’s background in sociology helps highlight the media misrepresentation of the community as well as the intersectionality of the LGBTQ+ identity with other aspects including race, gender, and religion.  (Warning Explicit Language)
