This talk is based on my first book project, "Trans Gestures: Regulation, Embodiment, and Care Work in Trans Latinx Lives," which chronicles the role of gender variance, trans gender identity, and queer sexuality in shaping migration, family relationships, and everyday life in Los Angeles. The larger book project draws on thirty in-depth interviews, participant observation, and 130 surveys from trans Latinx immigrants of first, 1.5 and second generations in the U.S. that began as a community-based research collaboration with the TransLatin@ Coalition, a national organization based in Los Angeles, CA that advocated for trans and immigrants right.
