Shout out to my baddass xicana homie Lucero for getting us solidarity rings ❤️ I’m so thankful for her friendship, she has been my friend since grade school & look at us now, chicanas stirring up trouble with the yt folk in power, aint no stopping us. from Ca to the Midwest. Can’t wait so see where the future takes us ❤️
Chicana fund-raising to open the 13th feminist bookstore in the U.S.!
In a day in age where a white dude receives nearly 60 grand for eating a potato salad, it is especially important to foster a sense of community by donating and promoting to activist projects that go perpetually unsupported. 
We hope that the tumblr community can help change this by supporting a project created by a woman of color, a queer woman, and a queer woman of color. 
With that being said, the Denton, Texas Femme Fest Organizers/the creator ofMuchacha Fanzine are excited to announce the biggest project we have ever taken part in. We have teamed up and have worked endlessly this summer to share this dream with you… FUNDRAISING TO OPEN UP THE NONPROFIT INDEPENDENT FEMINIST BOOKSTORE & COMMUNITY CENTER IN DENTON, TEXAS, SOUTHERN WOMAN’S BOOKSTORE!!! The bookstore would include diverse books & zines with an emphasis on women, POC & LGBTQ writers, artistic events (open mics, musical concerts, film screenings, art shows), consciousness-raising workshops, and more! 
We believe in the power of representation. A feminist bookstore and community center would help a young woman see her own story in print. It would help a person of color learn about their history and see a name like theirs on the shelves. It would help an LGBTQ individual locate themselves within a story, when they are often rendered invisible.
WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP OUR DREAM BECOME REALITY: 
Donate through our GoFundMe! (Each donation matters despite the amount. Seriously if every tumblr feminist got out their credit card-if they have one- and spent 1 minute of their time to donate $5, a safe radical activist bookstore and cultural community center would be able to exist and thrive and positively impact thousands of people in the South where a space like this is desperately needed)

Stay tuned for the Third Annual Denton, Texas Femme Fest Nov 22, location TBA. Femme Fest this year will be benefiting Southern Woman’s Bookstore. We are currently looking for bands and artists to join our Southern Grrrl Revolution.
In a world where women, POC, LGBTQ projects are time and time again unsupported, please please please consider being involved in the preservation of our knowledge, activism and art!!!
Tumblr Community, I double dare you to support small town grrrl activism and reblog this. Let’s shoot for one million reblogs.

I just wanted to see some queer latinx art sooo. This was fun to do because of the lighting and it was not fun to do because of the lighting.Denim is tough. Branches are tough, leaves are tough. Flesh is fun and flexible. I wanted expressive strokes! I think I delivered kinda. As with every piece I learned a thing or two.
Hope someone out there enjoys!

you are lovely

Day 2 #radicalselflovejuly “your idol”

Gloria Anzaldúa’s work has been such an inspiration to my life, both academically and on a more personal emotional level. I admire her strength and courage to write about her life so unapologetically. To refuse to erase any of her identities and instead embrace the intersectional complexities of being a qwoc Chicana lesbian scholar writer living in El mundo zurdo. Reading her words inspires me to write about my experiences and explore myself more intimately as a qwoc femme brown gurl. <3 

" Why am I compelled to write?… Because the world I create in the writing compensates for what the real world does not give me. By writing I put order in the world, give it a handle so I can grasp it. I write because life does not appease my appetites and anger… To become more intimate with myself and you. To discover myself, to preserve myself, to make myself, to achieve self-autonomy. To dispel the myths that I am a mad prophet or a poor suffering soul. To convince myself that I am worthy and that what I have to say is not a pile of shit… Finally I write because I’m scared of writing, but I’m more scared of not writing." #GloriaAnzaldúa
