Jose Antonio Vargas: Coming Out As Undocumented
"So you grew up in america and didn't know you're undocumented until you went to get your license sixteen yes so four years. After arriving here i went to the mvp. Because i think my friends for an arvin was getting tired of dragging me around driving miss daisy. And so he was. Lake may be time to go to the and i lived at the library. I mean that's where. I spent a lot of my the amount of the public library and i saw the library to get a driver's license. You need to do these things like bring a student. Id evan bring proof of identification. Which was the green card or a passport so yeah. I biked from my house to the dmv. I get called to the booth after waiting in line. And then that's when the woman said to me that the green card that i brought was fake and my first instinct. When she told me that was to think. I am not mexican because even back then. This was ninety seven whenever anybody said anything about fake papers anything about documentation. The radio the television shows the newspaper said he was all about mexican people. So that was my first instinct was to think i'm not mexican. Which is a horrible thing but again. That's where the power of media is so is so important right back then again. This is ninety seven back then. That was already part of the psyche. That whenever you thought about fake papers or quote unquote legal people lose by mexican people and also. You're a sixteen. I was sixteen. That's kind of started this whole thing and for my grandfather. I confronted him afterwards. Of course and my grandfather said yeah. It's fake you're not supposed to show that to people. And that's when basically the plan that he and my mother and my grandmother had concocted kind of expose itself to me. That's when i found out what their plan was. And so that was over twenty years ago long time ago and i bring that up because yes then there's been no change or resolution in your immigration status. That is such a long period of time to live with that stress and ambiguity. And that's what. I was getting out into the book when i was really interested in the main question i had was. Why might this messed up. Why do i have a hard time having relationships with people why why is it that it seems as if i have created borders walls lake with the way i treat my own friends like i've on thirty eight years old and never had a boyfriend like what is that about. I've never been in a committed relationship with anybody because what was the point. I was going to get deported. I was gonna leave i. I always had this feeling that everything was temporary. Nothing was permanent and so even that that was the way even had sex with people. you know. it's like okay we're done. I'll see you later. What are you still doing here. What am i still doing like get out. It's so interesting hearing you say all this because you also say that coming out as undocumented with such a bigger deal than coming out as gay. Because i think i had the privilege of living where i live you know like i was in mountain view which is what an hour south of san francisco in incredibly accepting family that but then i had a very accepting school. They kind of balance each other out so my catholic filipino families. Like what is this gay thing you're supposed to get married to a woman in. Bu citizen out to the argue that now that have come out the documented thing. I'm trying to understand the gay thing. Because i never really. I'm the hundred percent. I think i went to a gay pride parade. Maybe once in my life not twice. I went to the one in new york too. But i didn't wanna be there like i don't know what gay practice like. I'm still kind of confused by gay pride. Because maybe because i haven't dealt with my in many ways i came out but i came out in two thousand nine hundred ninety nine. It was a few months after the matthew. Shepard killing tragedy. I came out of necessity because if i had not come out as gay then. My grandfather's plan was for me to marry a woman who's a us citizen and try to get my papers that way so coming out that first time was like a way of saying. No one lie was enough. I'm not gonna lie about this. But because i've been in the closet about the undocumented thing i would argue that i'm probably still in the closet about the gaping because i'm still dealing with that like i don't know what that really is for me. There's nothing sense it does.

"Stephen, by the way, his baby is now the age that Matthew Shepard was when he was murdered. Exactly. Time flies ram fun. People say time man, there's nothing else to learn from today show. I last round with you. Yes question also can go for after as well. My my feeling is the people deal drugs. People get murdered. It's it's a bad and sad world. We live in. There's a there's two crimes there's the crime of killing Matthew Shepard. And then there's a crime of insane journalism where everyone just picked up this whole hate crime story just ran with it. And just threw it out to the universe. And never walked never walked it back or seem to correct and beyond journalism. There's the Laremy project which kids do play the kids do in schools all over the nation. There's the Matthew Shepard story movie. Dylan was saying that Matthew Shepard's mom spoke at his school. Like, hey, many view are not yet entered the fast pace lucrative world of drug selling was it that kind of thing or was it. It was about hate crimes. I imagine. This is my experience from having been involved with this story for a long time. And I've been Mered every which way is that. There are people that really believe there's the greater good argument. And I've had people say to me, how can you be self respecting gay men and do the story and my response. To them is that, you know, gay people. Okay. We were as, you know, fully dimensional, three dimensional dimensional human beings. That really we deserve the complexity of our humanity. And we are you know, we can have addiction problems. We can get involved in all kinds of things just like all other human beings do and to suggest that we need a poster child who is fair haired young person whose angelic who has no humanity whatsoever. That were then destined to keep repeating the same things. And you know, Jesse small case recently in Chicago. I mean, just the thought that someone believes that they're going to gain more prestige in money by portraying themselves as a hate crime victim is perhaps an indication of what the legacy of these kinds of falsehoods can be. So who do we blame in journalism? Oh that that's my question. You mentioned Stephen that. I think you mentioned the Genesis this was two friends or friends of Matthew who sort of put this out to that to appear. Whatever was what I soon their motivation was control the narrative mcmath, you look good or what? Well, beginning is okay. So one of the guys was older and one was younger. Okay. And these guys thing knew they knew what some of Matthew's issues were the older fellow of the two had known Matthew since he was fourteen you know, met you MAC you struggled with issues around drugs and alcohol since his team years. Okay. And the older fellow certainly knew.

And you'll see me talking to Mr. Webster, John. It was absolutely fascinating.

Your problem is go get some help. For one five eight hundred eighty eight ten. Put becoming uncomfortable talking about this story. And I'm gonna tell you why in just a moment.

Jussie smollet this assault on him, alleged, homophobic. Racist anti black attack. Again, they'd struck him in the fate allegedly. Struck him in the face poured. An unknown chemical substance on them, wrapped a rope around his neck and allegedly screamed this is Maga country. Chicago police say that this is Maga country part was not related to them. When the attack was first reported. But why am becoming uncomfortable in this era? Of everybody has a video camera. Every business has a video camera. Many. I'll never forget the first time I had a like a webcam attachment. I actually told the cops this long ago. I was like you ever need video footage. I got it. Let alone buses Chicago is full of cameras on light poles at intersections. There are cameras everywhere. According to WGN TV. In chicago. Just a couple hours ago two hours ago. Chicago police say they've reviewed hundreds of hours of footage from downtown surveillance cameras, but haven't found footage yet. Of the alleged attack. I'm just hoping it's an oversight at this point that they just simply haven't found it. But that makes me uncomfortable usually in that kind of an attack because it was specific where it occurred, etc. In an area with a ton of cameras. You find that very quickly. I'm not saying, I don't believe him. I'm saying I hope the cops hurry up and figure this out. Of what's going on? We need to know who attacked him. We need to know. These people need to be brought to Justice immediately. When this happens. I it makes me very uncomfortable that somebody in this day and age in a city like Chicago. Have you struggled? Maybe not quite as liberal as San Francisco. Maybe not quite as LGBTQ friendly as San Francisco, it might be more friendly to African Americans in San Francisco. I don't know. It might be Chicago is very diverse on on ethnic lines. It is. My battle buddy and basic training was his dad.

"Matters. Not just his behavior, but the family's behavior in your behavior and shared you're starting to realize pretty age also your day. Yeah. Well, you know at that point. I'd lived like even though I I guess you would say that brought me to a greater understanding of that from third grade on it always known that. There was something different about me. But the affection that I felt for other boys, and even my teachers at the time, it was not like within the normal, quote, unquote, normal range of expression that man could have another man. So I knew that. So I sort of lived with that secret. But thought okay, you know, it's just it's just another secret that I have, you know, when you grow up in the fundamentalist area, you you keep a lot of secrets, you know, because if you've ever thought about thing or or done anything, you know, that's labeled as bad, which there are a lot of bad things to do. You learn how to keep secrets really well. So I just thought it was another secret homosexuality was explained to me through sort of the story of Matthew Shepard who was murdered and left who's left for dead after coming onto another guy. In in the church really went with that. And said look at what happens whenever you live and openly gay lifestyle. So that was one part of the story was hearing the other part of the story was hearing was okay. Well, if you have what they called same sex attraction, they never called it homosexuality. They call it same sex attraction because it's something that you experience not something that you are a very strong distinction that they make behavior yet today, which means the paper can be changed. So they would say if you've ever experienced same sex attraction just think of it this way, it's like those moments when you get really mad, and you wanna choke someone or punch someone you don't do it. The. When you have that idea. Explain to you was such a thority, you you just think. Okay. We'll just another set of things that experience. The problem was hitting puberty, and realizing that I wanted love that's something that the blood is a very powerful experience you want it you can begin to feel the inklings of with your crushes that. It's only it's like, you know, that whatever that experience is going to be is going to be stronger, it's going to override whatever the churches telling you. So that scared me because I didn't wanna lose my relationship with God. And certainly didn't think it was worth, you know, expressing my identity if I was gonna lose my family as well. So he just start keeping secrets you become very gush fail here. It's something that I find we don't talk about a lot in the in the queer community, which is that we learned how to keep secrets so well that it's really hard to have real intimacy with people because often, you know, you're like. Resort to being like, well, you don't need to know that information. You know, I'm gonna protect myself. Nobody needs to know what I feel about this. And I think we've become very defensive often. And we have to work through that grew up in these environments. Yeah, I learned very well. How to keep secrets and kept it from a self until I was outed. I went to college for one semester. My roommate at the time salted me, and I don't know how much you go into detail on this because it's kind of disturbing, but his altered me he had assaulted another boy. And I found this out I told a few people, and then he informed. My parents that I was gay because I told him in a brief moment of trust that I was having these feelings the same sex attraction, so called my mom, and he said, well, he's very gaining hasn't openly gay relationship with another boy, which was not true. What made him do that? Because he knew that. I was going to tell the heat assaulted me. It was like a train to strike. Yeah. It's a tactic that. I mean, a lot of abusers use of since learned where they bargained base. Like, whatever information they have on you. They try to use it to get ahead of where a complete exposure where even just the rumor of it. And I feel like he also knew that. I was very honest person. I knew how to keep secrets. But when something is directly asked of me it it's hard for me to lie..

So that's sort of what makes that special, but in relation to the federal government government's just changed in Australia. I think that the fog going on, but you know, the the last few bit bumpy. And it's gonna take a while for that to correct, but they governments in Australia act pretty well. Very independently I have a lot of independent action. And so they can really do what they want to. And so that's a good thing. Then this Victoria, have to go through the federal government to Rabeni face from the powder and. Road initiative, and we always saw about on wrote a cooperation between two countries. How will the bout in Rhode cooperation work between the country and state rejoin government doesn't have to go through the federal there's a federal system in Australia, the states a very independent and they can act independently financially. So for that sort of key allows Victoria to do this. And for the BI development will it's this is going to develop cooperation, I think, you know, the Torius just gone through a huge sort of infrastructure building. It's not Gigante. It's not in the scale at Biard. I is, but it's definitely in the medium size for country, and they've done a lot of railway and transport infrastructure. So they build up quite a lot of expertise in in doing that. And I think it's interesting too that the head of the Biagi program, the one that sort of instigated this whole thing was the head of the chairman of the VHP Billiton, which is one of the largest mining companies in the world, and he sees it. That it's this is going to open all the resources in central Asia Africa, Latin America and elsewhere, and we've big Torius expertise and history of sort of global interaction with multinational corporations and so forth.

"Of Wyoming, the murder of a gay college student shocked the nation. Matthew Shepard was twenty one years old when he was tied up bludgeoned repeatedly and left for dead to member given life sentences for his murder. This is Matthew's father Dennis speaking shortly after his son's death, mass family and friends loved him deeply, and we need to share a quiet goodbye with him. We should try to remember they because maths last few minutes of consciousness on earth may have been held his family and friends or more than ever to say their farewells to him in a peaceful dignified and loving manner. Well, today, two decades on Matthews ashes will be interred at the National Cathedral in Washington DC that was the idea of gene Robinson, the first priest in an openly gay relationship to be made a Bishop of a major Christian denomination. He's been speaking to my NewsHour colleague, James kumarisami, and he began by describing the circumstances of Matthew's death, and you might find it disturbing. In nineteen ninety eight this twenty one year old college student. Matthew shepard? Was lured away from a bar by two men his own age and taken out to a remote spot in Wyoming and pistol whipped within an inch of his life and hung on offense to die. They left him there, and he hung there on the fence for eighteen hours before someone discovered him there. And as the cyclist who discovered him got closer, it looked to him like a scarecrow. And then he realized it was not only a human being, but a human being that was still breathing and six days later. Matthew Shepard died at age twenty one it galvanized the American public. And I think in some ways gay and lesbian bisexual transgender queer. People had been used to all kinds of violence. But I think this really shook the heterosexual citizenry shook. Them deeply because now they saw it loud and clear that the violence that we had been talking about indeed existed, and this kind of cruel and brutal thing was happening. Why is it taking twenty years to enter his ashes Judy Shepard? His mother called me a few months ago and said, you know, we're coming up on the twentieth anniversary of Matthew's murder and we've never buried his ashes. And actually, I was not aware of that. Although I know the shepherds, I didn't know that fact, and she said the reason we haven't done it until now is that we were fearful that if we buried Matthews ashes in some public place that an anti-gay individual or group would desecrate his grave, and we just given what he went through. We just couldn't bear the thought of that. So I said would you like me to talk with the phone? Folks at the federal and and this is a place where Matthews remains can rest. And in fact, people can come there and sit outside the crypt where he will be buried and thanking pray and meditate on the meaning of of what happened twenty years ago and all of the work that remains to be done for the LGBTQ community. How would you compare though then and now how far is America come? Well, it is this two sides of a coin, right? We have just come so far five years after Matthew's death. I was elected Bishop of New Hampshire becoming the first openly gay and partnered Bishop in historic Christianity. And then by within ten years later, we had allowed LGBT people to serve in the military, and and in two thousand fifteen of course, gay marriage became the law of the land. So we've come. A long way. But the fact of the matter is we've come a long way on the two coasts and in most large cities. But there are vast stretches of America that are not all that different from the state of things in Wyoming in nineteen ninety eight that resulted in Matthew's death, and we have a majority of our states right around thirty. You can still be fired simply for being gay. You can be refused a hotel room, you you can be thrown out of your apartment, and there is no recourse in the courts.

That's according to a new report on the demographics of New York service organizations, the city survey compiled data for more than four hundred nonprofits, and it found that almost seventy percent of nonprofit leaders are white. That's in a city where white residents make up just about thirty percent of the population. But Tabashnik gosh who helped author the report says she was encouraged by how many respondents valued equity and inclusion that was somewhat of a bright point just knowing that people came back and said that you know, we do value this. Maybe we're not making a priority or maybe we're not doing well enough. But it is something that we see as being important. The study also includes data on gender age and other categories as well as tips on how to improve equity and inclusion.

Doc to Washington DC. Where I think this is actually good news. But it's weird. But it's good. Oh about almost exactly twenty years ago. Was when Matthew Shepard oh, young gay boy in Wyoming? In laramie. Was murdered presumably as a hate crime. I mean, he was a high schooler, and he was he was brutally murdered by some by some thugs who who hated him because he was guy. Yeah. And you know, he can't kind of became this this touchstone in in the gay in the fight for gay rights and a very important figure sort of an Emmett till figure, I think in the gay rights movement. And he. News just came out this week that he is going to his body is going to be interred at the National Cathedral in Washington DC. Really? Yeah. So they're gonna move. They're gonna move his body from where rests now his parents have always been concerned that his resting place would be a would attract vandals. Because he was so important, and because so many people oppose everything that he stood for or everything that he symbolizes. So it's actually quite lovely the National Cathedral for those who don't know is is an episcopal cathedral and. His family was a pyschopath Lian. And of course, the Piscopo church of the United States largely is gay, affirming. They have rights for gay marriages. They have gay priests. They have gay Bishop. Yeah. And it was actually that that first the first gay Bishop that they had what was his name. Gene, something gene Robinson Robinson who who actually shepherds mom called him. And just said, hey, what do you think about this idea of of interring him in the National Cathedral? He thought it was a great idea called the the dude in charge of the cathedral. So that's where he will rest forever. You know, it's one of those things where you know, if maybe it feels weird for an atheist to be celebrating this. But it feels like that person was important enough in in our cultural history that that they need a burial of importance and a monument of importance. Yeah. So one also safe place. Yeah. You know, where people can't turn it into their own. They can't have their moment of defiling or right defiling. What's that word vandalizing? Right. And there were and there will be a plaque in the cathedral for everyone to see, but his bones will actually be sort of locked up in the in the vault in the the mausoleum which is not open to cramped. Yeah. Whatever it is. I don't know. Okay. So so they won't be able to get to his body. You know, if worst they could get to the monument, which you know to the plaque. Right.

It's going to be a gay rights thing to hugely sup. The whole thing is a put up job by the homosexual mafia we've talked about the many many times on the show, but let me tell you about the post. I stuck up around this story. Another cultural lag. It's further glorification. The name of political correctness. Matthew Shepard was an HIV positive meth and heroin dealing homosexual prostitute that's effect, by the way is not someone worthy of the burial in the National Cathedral plan for this month. He was beaten and tortured to death in a drug deal gone wrong, one of his fellow homosexual prostitutes during the beating this is as much allies Trayvon Martin not being a street thug. That attacked George Zimmerman and without cause and tried to beat him to death and as much as Michael Michael Brown. I'm not being a street thug and attacking and tried to kill Dern Wilson police officer doing his job as much as gray. As something other than a street thug that resisted arrest to the point of hurling himself against to death against police van door witnessed by another street thug in the van, by the way, on the way to lack up.
