Gloria Anzaldúa

feliz birthday! Gloria Anzaldúa taught us that we are multidimensional, in a constant state of becoming, and, despite dominant culture’s obsession with placing people in fixed, binary boxes, our plurality, and its intersections, makes us whole and gives us la facultad, a perspective and power that’s all our own. She gave an explanation to why us nepantleras didn’t feel like we had a home anywhere. Anzaldúa taught us that living in multiple worlds is not an impairment but a possibility. Because of our multiple identities, we have a unique perspective on the world which allows us to see what lies in the dark, what is hidden just beneath the surface.
