Janaya Khan, is black and queer, this person wrote in Now:Toronto “Since the action, I have received hate mail and death threats, primarily from gay-identifying men. I have been screamed at on the street. I have been called a “n—–” more times than I care to count. People have told me I’m no longer part of the queer community because my Blackness has no place there.” Janaya Khan is black and queer; this person wrote in Now: Toronto. “Since the action, I have received hate mail and death threats, primarily from gay-identifying men.
