Episode 82: Mujer Fiera

Jul 19, 2018, 12:00 PM

Dr. Anita Tijerina Revilla is an Associate Professor and Director of Gender and Sexuality Studies at the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV). Anita, AKA Mujer Fiera, is a much loved presence in the national joteria academic world, and in this episode, she schools us on the fluidity of Latinx queerness, passing heteros, and the way she brings these ideas into the classroom. Babelito, Favy and Anita also discuss the politics behind the commercialization of Frida Kahlo's image and the importance and privilege of choosing to question your sexuality at least once in your lifetime. The radicalization of activism starts many times in the classroom and Anita's commitment to her students and to the activist Latinx communities gives us hope for the future. As always, remember to send your questions to AskLWLPod@gmail.com and we might read them on a future episode! #supportbrownpodcasts #supportlatinxpodcasts #lwlpod
