Claudia Rodriguez, Richard Villegas, and Alicia Gaspar de Alba
UCLA Chicana/o Studies Professor, author, and poet, Alicia Gaspar De Alba, talks Queer Bilingual Poetics with two former students of hers–Claudia Rodriguez and Richard Villegas Jr., each an accomplished writer–who graduated UCLA with BAs in Chicana/o Studies in the late 1990s. The event is a celebration of queer diversity in the Latino/a community, and racial diversity in the queer community. March 8 is also International Woman’s Day. Books will be sold at the book-signing. The event is organized by the UCLA Alumni Affairs Diversity Programs, in partnership with Lambda LitFest 2017.
