Happy Birthday  Gloria E. Anzaldúa!

September 26th is the birthday of  Chicana dyke-feminist, tejana patlache poet,  and cultural theorist from the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas, Gloria Anzaldúa (1942-2004).  

 Anzaldúa is known for writing and editing pivotal, intersectional feminist works, including her most famous book,  Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza (1987). In 1995, Anzaldúa was the first participant in the UWM Student Union Distinguished Lecture Series with her talk Aliens: The Dynamic Construction of the U.S. Chicana/Latina Experience. We were so happy to find something on Gloria in our collections–she is loved by many a librarian and archivist at UWM <3

From the UWM Student Union Collection, UWM AC 124, Box 39, Folder 10.

today marks the 110 birthday of frida kahlo. the brilliant and legendary mexican artist continues to inspires us to be beautiful and colorful in chaos and pain. she continues to remind us that we can paint and recreate ourselves every single day.

happy birthday, frida!

“I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me
who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.” - Frida

I’m so ready for it to be fall already~

On June 4th I turned 30.

When I was young, freshly kicked out of my house cuz of the gayness, with anxiety, and with lots of insecirities and self esteem issues, I could only wish for the life I had now.

Im out in every aspect of my life, I love my wife, my mom, my family, my career, and my life. I worked hard and it took 10 years but it was worth it.

It really does get better.
