We are a community made up of radical mujeres, some of color and some queer, based in Tucson, Arizona. We are mothers, daughters, sisters, tias, lovers, partners, and friends, determined to document the experiences, narratives, and knowledge of those who dwell in society’s margins. We welcome submissions from all of you who have gained knowledge from the school of hard knocks: from living life as a person of color, a person with a disability, one who challenges heteropatriarchy and embraces queer culture, or from coming into your own female empowerment. We want to hear from everyone whose skin tones, body shape or size and language become the justification for social marginality and rejection, and from those who don’t have material or monetary privilege. Some of our most beloved comadres are men, carving out an alternative, anti-patriarchal masculinity; you might hear from them on our blog too.

Somos una comunidad formada de mujeres radicales basada en la comunidad de Tucson,Arizona. Nosotr@s nos identificamos como mujeres de color o también como jot@s/queer. Somos madres, hijas, hermanas, tías, amantes, soci@s y amig@s, decidid@s a documentar las experiencias, relatos, y conocimientos de lo que se vive dentro de las márgenes de la sociedad. Es por eso que damos la bienvenida a las exposiciones de tod@s los que han adquirido su conocimiento de la escuela de hardknocks, ya sea viviendo la vida como una persona de color, una persona con discapacidad(es), que reta, cuestiona, y desafía la hetero-patriarca mientras respeta y acepta la cultura jot@/queer y el empoderamiento femenino. Queremos escuchar a tod@s los tonos de piel, cuerpo o tamaño, lenguaje, y otras identidades que han sido sujetas a la marginación y rechazo social, y de los que no tienen privilegio material o monetario. Algunos de nuestros queridos compañer@s y soci@s son hombres que proponen una alternativa anti-patriarcal masculina, y es por eso que tambien oirán sus voces en nuestro blog.

A la lucha, a la lucha, somos locas pero somos muchas!

    You are SO right. You need to wrest control. No more green curtain.

    ¡Órale! Do I ever hear you! I am a Chicano queer from Casa Blanca in southern Califas–a sturdy little Chicano town which survived vicious and varied assaults on our self-view and and indigena-mestizo-hispano take on the world and of us in it. Simultaneously it was freaky growing up so small yet so aware in a seriously homophobic and damaging family and social element. I am delighted to have encountered malintZINE and I will add it to my blogroll on XLOWRIDER TIMES PANCHO VILLA. I also publish Hate Crime Review & Parody a ‘zine. Hasta la proxima, Antonio
