Negotiating Our Membership: Factors leading Latina lesbians to develop a politicized collective identity (2014)

This is a project thesis headed up by Susana Rodriquez who attended Smith College. This paper is about how Latinas have to balance different identities when they are at the college campus. Queer Latinas run into what is called the “double minority” tern in which queer Latinas are part of two not priviledged groups: queer and Latina. She writes about how she came to campus and “came out” and was a attending a mostly white campus. She learned about power and oppresion in her classes on campus. She critiques some of the major identity “fathers” in missing the intersection piece.
