Arguing that gender non-conformity shapes understandings of queerness in Chicanx literary texts, this original and provocative book theorizes a movement beyond the binaries of white lesbianism and heteronormative Chicanidad, examining the normative projects of borderlands theory and queer of color critique to claim post-borderlandia as a site where gender variance opens up new potentialities for Chicanx subjectivity.
