My new segment premiered on DeBug Tv of having queer conversations with random lgbtq folks from San Jose and the greater Bay Area. In this series, I sit down with 16 year old Vanessa to talk about coming out, identity, and what a “jump off” and “homie hopper” means.
Silicon Valley’s De-Bug is a collective of writers, artists, organizers, and workers based in San Jose, California. De-Bug started in the Spring of 2000 by reporting on the hidden experiences of working people who were employed as low-wage temporary workers. As we grew as a collective we began exploring all of the issues of our community – in the workplace, schools, streets, relationships, and everything else.
De-Bug is about allowing everybody to tell the stories of their lives, and their opinions on the world, both near and far. We operate by the principle that experience is the ultimate authority. In this way, we are creating a platform for otherwise unheard stories to be communicated to eachother and the world around us.
