Finding Gloria: Nos/otras – In the spirit of Gloria Anzaldúa
“Finding Gloria: Nos/otras … In the spirit of Gloria Anzaldúa, Finding Gloria: Nos/otras is an independent zine-a compilation zine. In this zine, we channel the writing of Gloria herself, “By writing I put order in the world, give it a handle so I can grasp it. I write because life does not appease my appetites and anger…” Inside a tiny gift of a letter poem.
