Ten days ago Gloria Anzald?a, one of the foremost theorists (and activists) of lesbian, Chicana, and feminist issues, died at the age of 61. It is believed that Anzald?a succumbed to complications from diabetes, exacerbated by her inability to afford quality health care in the state of California. Her books This Bridge Called My Back and Borderlands/La Frontera are required reading for sociologists, cultural theorists, and anyone seeking to better understand the US-Mexico border culture.
