Laureano on the History of #FemmesOver35

“The hashtag is unapologetically queer, femme, of color, over 35, sexy, fly, brilliant, fat, strong, courageous, fantastic, and challenging all the stereotypes about what and how ‪#‎femmesover35‬ look, feel, and live.

Bianca Laureano of Latinx Sexuality describing the origins of the hashtag #FemmesOver35, what it means to stay alive as a femme of color when so many of us have been killed (in one way or another), and how important it is for us to create archives and write our own histories of our survival.
