The student organization Queer People of Color and Allies and the Gender and Sexuality Center at The University of Texas at Austin celebrate Awareness Week with noted actor and writer Adelina Anthony, on Thursday, April 16, 2009 at 7:00 pm.

Adelina Anthony will be performing an excerpt from "La Angry Xicana?!"

Adelina Anthony, a Xicana-Indígena lesbian multi-disciplinary artist, hails originally from San Antonio, Tejas. She currently resides in Los Angeles. Her work addresses colonization, feminism, trauma, memory, gender, race/ ethnicity, sexuality, in/migration, health, land/environment, and issues generally affecting the lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender/two-spirited communities. She believes access to a progressive education, transgressive art, and therapy empowers individuals and communities to make healthy and transformative life choices.

The event is free and open to the public.
