Kiyoshi Kuromiya: Balancing Might with Life

Kiyoshi Kuromiya: Balancing Might with Life:

makingqueerhistory:

Today, however, we’ll be looking at the life and activism of Japanese-American Kiyoshi Kuromiya. Kuromiya lived from 1943 to 2000; he was born in a Japanese Internment Camp at Heart Mountain. His activism ran the gambit from queer rights to work with the Black Panthers to the legalization of marijuana. His willingness to fight against an unresponsive government is a trait that the queer community can look to at all times, but in particular in the coming days.
