Andrea Bolivar is a cultural anthropologist whose current project, “‘Somos una Fantasia’: Race, Violence, and Potentiality in Transgender Latina Sexual Economies of Labor” examines the experiences of sex working transgender Latinas in the Chicago metropolitan area. Her project interrogates how transgender Latinas are racialized and sexualized in sexual economies of labor, and in the U.S. nation more broadly. Bolivar offers a new analytical framework “fantasia” for understanding the complex racial, sexual, and gender identities of trans Latinas, and their ephemeral presence in the United States—they are always at risk of disappearing. Yet “fantasia” also indexes forms of queer potentiality. Dr. Bolivar describes how trans Latinas use their bodies to produce resistant forms of labor, care, kinship, and space-making, locally and transnationally.

Presented by the Lesbian-Gay-Queer Research Initiative (LGQRI).
