The Life and Times of Butch Dykes Issue 1, Vol 7: Gloria AnzaldĂșa

by B&D Press

The Life and Times of Butch Dykes is B&D Press series of fanzines about the lives and times of amazing women who could be considered icons against heteronormativity, in their very personal and unique ways. They're from different places/spaces and yet have as a common ground the fact that they're all accomplished creators, in work and life. They were and are brave people who tried to be authentic and faithful to what they perceived as their true identity. Gloria AnzaldĂșa was a theorist, academic, and writer who introduced the concept of the borderlands, an idea that encompasses and goes beyond geography and genre and into identities of race, sexuality, and gender.
