Read Achy Obejas's piece "On Gendered Language," on the Poetry Foundation's website. 

Boomerang/Bumerán, published last year, is a bilingual book of poetry written with non-gendered language. Obejas reflects on the power of language in disrupting the gender binary. 

Tulanians may remember Obejas from her feature in the 2019 Latin American Writers Series. You can access her interview and storymap here.

"I wondered: what would gender-free language sound like? What would it look like on the page?"
