For Pride Month this year, the AFL-CIO is spotlighting various LGBTQ+ union members who have worked and continue to work at the intersection of civil and labor rights in the United States. Today's profile is Maggie Hernandez of the United Steelworkers (USW).

Maggie Hernandez is incredibly active in USW Local 7600's Next Gen, Women of Steel and the Civil and Human Rights committees. Outside of her union activism, she also does custom beading for drag performers' costumes, and her work was featured in the last season of "RuPaul's Drag Race."
