Dissident artivism resists in the streets of Colombia

“The presence of the bodies that inhabited the marches was always a very macho thing, of this rude man. In itself, there was no space where queers, trans women or whores could protest, because it is what is considered resented and separated from society. It is precisely the deviants who have more power to what society is imposing on us, and I feel that, little by little, the presence of these dissident bodies, of trans people, queer, non-binary people, are belonging to the march. ”. The speaker is Camilo Acosta, a Colombian video artist who lives in Bogotá and who is co-founder of the House of Tupamaras voguing and ballroom house. She is known in the artistic world as Lady Hunter and, since last April 28, when the national strike and demonstrations began in Colombia, she has attended f...

"I am a mine-mean-chabón that eats the ‘s’, and?"

Sometimes I eat it, other times I look like a football player, yes, FOOTBALL PLAYER. Many others I found myself up to the fence as a macho barrabrava, desperately shouting a Racing goal.In the neighborhood I was always with the kids, I played football with a gang of bullies, with whom we also jumped laces making ourselves flying bikes. They told me tomboy, cachito, tortón, cake, truck driver, lesbian, you have to walk like a lady, you have to show your tits more, you have to be more of a baby, shirt and short hair is very cake.When I was 10 years old, I won a Bronco yo-yo contest, they gave me a Tammy, and a Vanillita doll, I approached the one who gave the awards and said: I want number 5, he said no, it was for baby. I left crying.Another time a neighbor took me out of the field where...

Dolores Barreiro just wants to have fun

"The best legs of Menemism are scissoring!", A friend wrote to me when she heard the news. I admit that I was shocked by the much-mentioned image (which no longer needs presentation) when I saw it, and I had to leave the cooked mate on the table and check that I had not gotten into a space-time vortex and landed in 2008. “¿¿ Dolores Barreiro is cake ?! " Spoiler alert: not. The one who got married was not Dolores but her sister and all the posting is nothing more than a piercing of her (Dolores) with a friend of hers.The truth is that while Dolores can have fun pretending to marry a friend, Marian Gómez was acquitted last month after being convicted in 2019 basically for opposing her arrest for kissing her wife at a train station; and that story had much less impact than this "occurrenc...

The Trans Memory Archive reaches the Encuentro channel

The first image is a fragment of a home video: a vaporous Evita, between smoke and glitter. Maria Belén Correa puts on stage the mother of the shirtless in a cabaret in Hannover, Germany. And it is a success. What is behind that character that shines with rhinestone coverage? Presence and skills forged in situations that range from dancing in the February parades to the uncovering of the tits in front of Congress as a political gesture. And also: the pirouettes to escape bullying in his hometown and institutional violence, from torture in police stations to the experiences he lived as a migrant after requesting political asylum in the United States. The history of María Belén, that of Cinthia Aguilar, that of Edith “La Tajo” Rodríguez and that of Julieta “La Trachyn” González serve as a ...

Oscars 2021: in Hollywood anti-racism ends on set

Conquests are never linear. The 13th Amendment declared the freedom of blacks and Africans in the United States. But it wasn't until the 14th Amendment that equality was proclaimed. Of course, opening spaces for intelligibility and action is more productive than not doing it. But on that space you have to military. From that amendment to the death of George Floyd at the hands of the American police, that struggle continues, reaching the revisionism of the role of Abraham Lincoln that the miniseries shows Amendment XIII Directed by Avu DuVernay and available on Netflix. There we learned that Lincoln wanted, before needing manpower for the civil war he was losing, to send all blacks from the United States to Costa Rica. And, according to the documentary, it was the abolitionist black ...
