How can the every-day realities faced by queer women of color living in the so-called US help us interpret Chicana daily life?

Grounded in Chicana feminism and queer decolonial politic, this autohistoria explores the every-day realities faced by queer women of color living in US settler society and attempts to make meaning of Chicana daily life.

Through research, narrative, and poetry, each chapter reflects the struggles, pleasures, and dreams of a fat, queer, displaced Chicana learning to practice freedom. Chicana: An Autohistoria demonstrates how power, domination, love, and the relationship to self shapes Chicanx and Latinx lives.
