Puerto Rico Para Cristo/Puerto Rico for Christ

In 1899 ambassadors from protestant churches knelt over the map of Puerto Rico, divided the territory among them and prayed that locals met their influence without hostility. This vignette from Donald T Moore’s book Puerto Rico for Christ and pulled apart by Puerto Rican sociologist Emilio Pantojas García sets the wheels in motion that allowed religion to steer the future of our political and cultural system. In this episode, journalist and producer Alejandra Rosa and author and photographer Huáscar Robles review how this religious influence fuels today’s anti-LGBTQ agenda. This is part 2 of 3.

Puerto Rico Para Cristo/Puerto Rico for Christ

The Puerto Rican Silence

In her description of a hate crime, a transgender woman recalls how her audition sharpened while she fended off what seemed like certain death. She could hear the nightscape, the coquies and radio sounds of the nearby homes. Puerto Rican journalist dubbed this “The Puerto Rican Silence,” the floating sounds of the island’s landscape. The description spans many metaphors on a country plagued by censorship, vigilance and persecution. Rosa, on powerful and emotionally charged interview, discusses with Catatonia Podcast the upcoming narrative piece she penned for Scallywag Magazine“From the Church to the Capitol: “Religious Freedom” vs. LGBT rights in Puerto Rico. This is part 1 of 3 episodes dedicated to The Future of the LGBTQ+ Community as the Religious Right influences government and attempts to roll back protections.

Silences: A Funeral and a National Strike

I went to Puerto Rico to bury my grandmother. There I found the national strike. This episode is about pausing, thinking and the silences we face during trauma. It also about images and surveillance, and how social and traditional media might evolve to become Puerto Rico's next "carpeteo" or surveillance program.

My mom relocated to New York after Hurricane María, a category 4 storm, eroded Puerto Rico's electric grid and killed close to one thousand U.S. citizens. In this podcast, I talk about moving her to New York, a metropolis unlike here small town in Caguas and the anxieties of living with an elderly adult in a hostile city.
