LUPE ONTIVEROS (1942-2012)

¡Actriz, Activista, Gritona!

Querida Lupe, we thank you for the time you spent with us.  We thank you for the gift you shared with us.  But above all we thank you for sharing your truth with the world, always speaking truth to power and never shying away from the fact that you were typecast as the Latina/Chicana maid over 150 times! Your bravery and example inspires us.

Colored homosexuals have more knowledge of other cultures; have always been at the forefront (although sometimes in the closet) of all liberation struggles in this country; have suffered more injustices and have survived them despite all odds. Chicanos need to acknowledge the political and artistic contributions of their queer. People listen to what your jotería is saying.
