An Ode to Queer Latinx Experience
Happy Latinx Heritage Month!

Along with celebrating your identities, attending Queer and/or Latinx programs, and supporting Hurricane Fiona relief efforts, we want to share more ways to be in solidarity and celebration with Queer Latinx communities.

Check out the books in our library, a QTL themed playlist created by staff member, Chris Cardenas, and a show to binge over Fall Break!
Mean is the bold and hilarious tale of Myriam Gurba's coming of age as a queer, mixed-race Chicana.

"We act mean to defend ourselves from boredom and from those who would cut off our breasts. ...

Being mean isn't for everybody.

Being mean is best practiced by those who understand it as an art form.

These virtuosos live closer to the divine than the rest of humanity. They're queers."

Desgraciado, a project born as a response to the prompt “write a love letter to your worst enemy,” is a collection of letters written to Diego de Landa,  a Spanish friar who attempted to destroy the written Maya language in the Yucatán on July 12, 1562 by burning codices, eight centuries of Mayan literature. Intimate and personal, Angel’s letters offer a space beyond the temporal to connect more deeply with their family, community, and kin.
Created by Julio Torres, Ana Fabrega, and Fred Armisen, Los Espookys is a Spanish-language (with English subtitles) comedy following a group of friends who turn their love for horror into a peculiar business, providing horror to those who need it, in a dreamy Latin American country where the strange and eerie are just part of daily life.

Check it out on HBO or keep an eye out for screenings from the office!
