Fuck Yeah Queer Latin@s in Books
They Call Me Mad Dog: A story for bitter, lonely people (Simon & Schuster, 1998) by Erika Lopez
What do you do when love goes wrong? If you’re Tomato Rodriguez, the reigning queen of motorcycle-riding, bicoastal bisexuals, you do every wrong thing there is to do. When Tomato’s lover, Hooter Mujer, falls off the fidelity wagon, our biker babe starts by dialing 1-800-REVENGE, performs a kinky little kidnapping, and ends up getting a GO TO JAIL/GO DIRECTLY TO JAIL card while trying to apologize for her bad behavior. What started out as low-rent revenge complete with whipped cream, Bic ballpoints, and a two-by-four, turns into a murder charge. Before Tomato knows what’s happening, she’s locked away in the Big House with all the rest of the bad, bad, bad girls, hoping Ilsa the Wicked Warden will think she’s too crazy to be convicted on a murder charge.

Two spirits in the Venezuelan jungle

These are photos of tida wena or “twisted women”, transgender women of the Warao, indigenous people in a remote part of Venezuela.

Like other women, the tida wena tended to the home, cooked and cared for children and elders. They also participated in the harvest of important crops, like the ocumo chino, a starchy tuber. Historically, tida wena were sometimes the second or third wives of polygamous men.

They also occasionally performed the role of shaman — the Warao are deeply rooted in the shamanist tradition — and tida wena in particular are thought to possess two spirits, bringing them closer to the ancestor spirits that roam the jungle.

This dual-spirit identity of transgender people is common in some indigenous communities

Read the whole article and see more photos in The New York Times!

Dos espíritus en la selva venezolana

Estas son fotos de las tida wena o “mujeres volteadas”, mujeres transgénero de les Warao, pueblo indígena de una región remota de Venezuela.

Al igual que el resto de mujeres, las tida wena cuidan de la casa, cocinan y cuidan a niñes y mayores. También participan en la recogida de importantes cosechas, como el ocumo chimo, un tubérculo almidonoso. Históricamente, las tida wena eran en ocasiones segundas o terceras esposas de los hombres polígamos.

También ejercían ocasionalmente el papel de chamán (les Warao están profundamente involucrades en la tradición chamanista) y de las tida wena en particular se cree que poseen dos espíritus, lo que las acerca más a los espíritus ancestrales que pueblan la jungla.

Esta identidad doble espíritu de las personas transgénero es común en algunas comunidades indígenas.

One of my favorite photos I’ve had candidly taken of me in a long time.

So xingona. So femme. Hella queer.

oh lord, I forgot about this photo. I found it again under the xingona tag.
