Who do you look up to in the LGBTQ+ community?
WUSF is asking members of the community to nominate their favorite "queer elders" to highlight the work of older LGBTQ+ Tampa Bay residents.
For the past couple years, WUSF's Daylina Miller has featured stories of trans joy — and taken us to queer spaces around the greater Tampa Bay region that allow members of the LGBTQ+ community to be their authentic selves.
This year, we're looking to identify queer elders to feature, folks over the age of 40 who are successful by their own definition. A number of proposed anti-LGTBQ bills has many younger queer people on edge, and we hope to highlight individuals they can look up to and see themselves becoming.
So WUSF Public Media wants to know: Who do you look up to in the LGBTQ+ community?
Let us know. We'll be using your responses to showcase the wisdom of queer elders.
