Join Queer People of Color and Allies (QPOCA) as we host our fourth annual Gloria Anzaldúa Luncheon, which serves to honor the legacy left behind by queer Chicana feminist and UT alumna, Gloria Anzaldúa.
The Gloria Anzaldúa Luncheon was created to make space for queer feminists of color, who are constantly marginalized and silenced by society. Previous keynote speakers include Cherríe Moraga, Kim Katrin Milan, and Mia Mingus.
This year we are pleased to announce our keynote speaker, Luna Merbruja! Luna is the author of Trauma Queen, a member of the 2014 Trans 100 List, international performance artist, and co-coordinator of the 2014 International Trans Women of Color Network Gathering. She is currently based in Central California and working towards her career as a sex and trauma therapist.
