This week on The Laura Flanders Show, an extended interview with DarkMatter:

Trans South Asian art duo DarkMatter is comprised of Alok Vaid-Menon and Janani Balasubramanian. They are deeply engaged in the connection of art and social justice, and have been performing to sold-out crowds in New York and internationally.

Topics covered include the queer movement in Palestine, and criticism of the mainstream white LGBT movement.
