Throughout the book, I enumerate the processes by which Chicanas/os gain
entry into transnational cultural formations. No single social, political, or
disciplinary process provides a thorough answer to all facets of transnational
identity. While traditional elements of nationhood or of belonging, in the case of
national minorities, still exist in ethnic, race, and class structures, I conclude that
gender and sexuality offer more varied responses to the idea of the dissolution of
the nation than any ...

8 "The Culture of Lesbianism" Intersections of Gender, Ethnicity, and Sexuality in
the Life of a Chicana Lesbian KATIE GILMARTIN The first time I met Virginia
Garcia, she was dressed all in lavender, with a purple bandanna tied around her
forehead and her long black hair. I didn't think much about the bandanna at first,
except that it seemed a bit out of place in the early 1990s. As I got to know
Virginia, I learned that this bandanna had a lot to say: the material itself and the
way she ...

stark poetry and passionate essays, Cherríe Moraga has forged a brand of
environmental justice in which sexuality and gender are as relevant as race and
class. Surviving as a Chicana lesbian poet, playwright, and essayist, Moraga's
work often narrates her pain and isolation, yet she unabashedly claims strength
and courage from her life experiences. Her powerfully intimate stories about
herself, her family, and her lovers line her path toward a radical politics. And it is
a radical ...

As discussed in earlier chapters, Latino men and women often receive different
messages and rules about sexuality and sexual expression. From childhood,
gender and sexuality are interconnected, such that girls tend to receive stronger
pronouncements about modesty, virginity, and proper conduct than do boys (
Zavella 1997). Patricia Zavella's 2003 study of Mexicanas and Chicanas in Santa
Cruz, California, highlights the impact of such messages on women's adult
sexuality and ...
