You're so beautiful too 😭😍

😭😍 like ima try really hard to not be all fangirl when I see you! Hahaha

Im just really, really in love with the fact that I’m part of a community (irl & on social media) of such badass muxeres who celebrate & uplift one another for our trajectories & complexities! I get some much inspiration from you! 💗💗💗 Wurk it! 🙌🙌

Until I am free to write bilingually and to switch codes without having always to translate, while I still have to speak English or Spanish when I would rather speak Spanglish, and as long as I have to accommodate the English speakers rather than having them accommodate me, my tongue will be illegitimate. I will no longer be made to feel ashamed of existing. I will have my voice: Indian, Spanish, white. I will have my serpent’s tongue - my woman’s voice, my sexual voice, my poet’s voice. I will overcome the tradition of silence.
—  Gloria Anzaldúa

As I am sorting through my room, my mama sits in my bed and asks me to help her on her homework, from an English night-course that she is taking at my lil brothers school. It’s these moments when I remember that she’d stay up late night with me to help me finish my homework. I’d be writing in a booklet and she’d be helping me draw. 🌀

She is my shero, mi maestra de la vida, y my everything. 💕

Our relationship is evolving, especially with me getting older. And it’s these moments that I cherish with all my heart.

There’s more to her than just being my mother to my siblings and I, or a pareja to my dad. Su estoria de muxer tiene muchos capítulos. 💛She hustled in her youngster days by working and saving every peso to cross over to this country. My mom has lot of passion from her hands and those that have gotten the special chance to meet her will know that she is una gran muxer. So happy Womyn’s International Month of March! 🌀💕🌞🌛✊👣
