Feministing Jamz: Javiera Mena’s new super queer femme music video

You may have noticed that we over here at Feministing love us some music, and that we have a lot to say about it and its political implications. So we’re excited to bring you Feministing Jamz, where we’ll talk music and feminism, bring you songs and videos, make you some playlists, and hopefully have some fun. We hope to be critics, fans, and (as major Feministing crush, Janet Mock, says) critical fans. Enjoy! 

Chilean indie darling and awesome queer lady Javiera Mena has just released a queertastic new video, and it is amazing! Now y’all know I love a good music video, and this one satisfies in major ways: a gorgeous color palette, an ’80s-futuristic aesthetic, and (my favorite part!) it is super queer. Not just that, it is queer femmes totally owning this shit — to which I am particularly partial — and it is absolutely dripping with queer sex. 

So dripping with queer sex, in fact, that I had to make some GIFs of some of the most queersexy parts:

“Quiero que tu espada me atraviese,” yep.


Do I even need to say more?!

Verónica Bayetti Flores has spent the last years of her life living and breathing reproductive justice. She has led national policy and movement building work on the intersections of immigrants' rights, health care access, young parenthood, and LGBTQ liberation, and has worked to increase access to contraception and abortion, fought for paid sick leave, and demanded access to safe public space for queer youth of color. In 2008 Verónica obtained her Master’s degree in the Sexuality and Health program at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health. She loves cooking, making art, listening to music, and thinking about the ways art forms traditionally seen as feminine are valued and devalued. In addition to writing for Feministing, she is currently spending most of her time doing policy work to reduce the harms of LGBTQ youth of color's interactions with the police and making sure abortion care is accessible to all regardless of their income.

Verónica is a queer immigrant writer, activist, and rabble-rouser.
