As a queer Xicana, I find it extremely important to express myself. For me, dance is my outlet, and my passion. I’ve been dancing for over 20 years; mostly Mexican folkorico, and Flamenco. I’ve dabbled in modern and in the last few years, belly dance. Through dance I am able to transmit culture, myself, influences, and create something new from my past and present.

Giomara is a proud Queer Xicana. She is a dancer, a lover, a laugher, an artist, an agnostic. This piece is homage to artistas xingonas from the past. For it is their inspiration, their energia y fuego that has given present and future artistas the power and pathway to self-expression. Adeilitas (escaramuzas), Frida Kahlo, Gloria Anzaldua y Selena Quintenilla-Perez all broke through boundaries and stereotypes with alma y pasion. This is Gio with An Homenaje a Las Xingonas.
