58 - La Nepantlera
Gloria Evangelina Anzaldúa was a Chicana scholar, third-world feminist, and queer theorist.
She is best known for co-editing This Bridge Called My Back with her friend and fellow queer Chicana Cherríe Moraga and for writing the semi-autobiographical Borderlands/La Frontera, documenting and deconstructing life on the physical and emotional borders of being queer, Chican@, indigenous, and a woman.
It is thanks to her that the concept of Nepantla (inbetweeness) is introduced to queer and Chican@ cultural theory, transforming the various axes of oppression queer Chican@s, Latin@s, and other people of color face into borderlands of possibility, arguing the inherent value of those who live on them because it enables them to see both in and out.
