We talk to one of India’s best friends, Mila Villasana, a freelance Mexican illustrator and designer. These long time friends talk about finding their queer identities and how it intersects with their Mexican identities, developing a sense of community, growing up in Mexico, and the country’s shifting LGBTQ culture. Yes, Aubree’s here too, but it is mainly a sweet catch up between two friends! You can see some of Mila’s work on Instagram at @misskiwifish.
To learn more about Mexican lesbian culture, we’d like to recommend: Tortilleras Negotiating Intimacy: Love, Friendship, and Sex in Queer Mexico City by Anahi Russo Garrido -https://amzn.to/3kaTxSL and the new book, Wild Hearts Can’t Be Tamed: 15 Voices from the Latinx Diaspora https://amzn.to/3q9HbhM, both are available on Amazon and our Bookshop.org page*.
And here’s the reference to the history of the lesbian flag that the Queer Godmother mentioned in the conversation: https://www.nonchalantmagazine.com/the-full-history-of-the-lesbian-flag/
