Guadalajara: macha central

If you are a queer woman, go to Guadalajara!!! And if you want to party it up at GDL’s only “macha” bar, go to D’Planet Bar! After being in 8 Mexican cities over a period of 4 months, I observed more queer women out and proud in GDL than anywhere else. D’Planet recently opened in [...]

Macha Mexico: events for this Saturday

This Saturday will be very busy for machas in Mexico City.  A march in the evening, a party for “chicks” and a punky-rockabilly-rocker concert to celebrate Ali Gua Gua’s birthday at night guarantee a full day and night. Here is the info for each event: Lesbian March* For about four years (as I can recall)  [...]

Clit Party: Electro Pop Love

The Clit Party is back again, with DJ May Crown spinning playful and sexy techno for the ladies to dance to this Thursday in the Condesa. The party offers itself as an alternative to Lipstick, but caters to a similar crowd: twenty and thirty-somethings, middle class, femme-of-center. Being in the Condesa, however, expect a slightly more [...]

Some Queer Readings

Two readings on new books focused on lesbianism and queerness will take place this Friday in different parts of the city. The first book is Entre amoras. Lesbianismo en la narrativa mexicana by María Elena Córdoba Rivera. The book will probably become one of the very few analysis about lesbian literature in Mexico. Experienced activists [...]

The main purpose of this association, and thus, of the exhibition, is to open spaces for the GLBT community in order to achieve visibility and change the way that the broader society conceives [...]

1st. Conference of Sexual Diversity at the UNAM

September is a patriotic month in Mexico, a time when you can find good food everywhere, parties, and of course, extravagant manifestations of Mexican nationalism. However, some GLBT people still manage to find spaces where they can get together and discuss their ideas during this time of the year. Such is the case of the [...]

“Clit Party” this Thursday

I was just finishing a coffee in the Condesa on Monday with some friends, when what should arrive with our bill than a stack of flyers for a lesbian party this Thursday. I have to admit I don’t know a thing about this party except what is advertised on the flyer. Will this party be [...]

Food and Queers this Week in Zacatecas

This weekend, Macha Mexico is heading northward to the beautiful city of Zacatecas in order to attend to a couple of conferences that are taking place in this colonial spot. The title of the first one is The Global Food Crisis, organized by the Doctoral Program in Development Studies at the Autonomous University of Zacatecas, [...]

Lesbian Sushi

Almost three years ago, on my second night in Mexico City, I was invited by a fabulous group of machas to attend one of their birthday parties at “Lesbian Sushi.” I had some reservations about the name of this event, recalling an exceedingly awkward “queer sushi” event I attended at Barnard College, at which uncomfortable [...]
