General Notes

The use of "Latinx" in this project aims to decenter the gender binary which is often implicit in the use of the male "Latino" and the female equivalent, "Latina." Latinx allows for a more complete representation of the varied voices that make up a community which include non-binary, transgender, and gender noncomforming individuals. Grounded in queer activist efforts and taken up by academia in spaces such as Critical Ethnic Studies, Latinx Studies, and Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies, the use of "Latinx" grounds this oral history project in important contemporary conversations about inclusivity and representation.
