Anzalduing it

Anzalduing It
Keynote Address

Queer bffs Angélica Becerra and Jack Cáraves bring you a new podcast discussing politics, pop culture, horoscopes and life on the borderlands. As Jack mentions in the first episode, “Anzalduing It” refers to the code switching Chicanos and other people of color experience, which is explored in Gloria Anzaldua’s Borderlands. “I’m ‘anzalduing it’ todo el tiempo” is a sentiment I deeply identify with too!


Angélica Becerra

Angelica Becerra is a queer immigrant artist, podcast producer & scholar of political graphics. She is a Ph.D. candidate in Chicana/o Studies at UCLA. Her artwork is primarily portraiture, with a focus on women and queer activists of color. Her art has been featured in VICE and Latina Magazine and exhibited in the Social & Public Art Resource Center and the Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History.
