Feministing Jamz video of the week: Libre Atrevida y Loca by Miss Bolivia

GLOBAL SOUTH FEMMES GO OFF! This video by Afro-Argentina Miss Bolivia featuring Rebeca Lane and Ali Gua Gua (of the Kumbia Queers) featuring femmes of all genders across Latin America is the cure for your Monday blues. 

In the video for “Libre, Atrevida y Loca” (Free, Bold & Crazy), Miss Bolivia, Rebeca Lane, and Ali Gua Gua’s raps slay patriarchal double standards, all while chilling with their spectacular crew of femmes of many genders that will set your squad goals. Filmed in Argentina, Guatemala, and Mexico (where Miss Bolivia, Lane, and Ali Gua Gua are from, respectively) these badasses want you to know that their mouths are sharp, that it’s nobodies’ business how they dance or dress or speak or who they fuck, and that they’re not about to be stepped on by patriarchy. They’re brujas, malvadas, cabronas, armadas, de lírica explosiva y música pesada! They want you to get the law out of between their legs!

Get into this cumbia hip-hop jam ASAP, and treat your eyes with global south feminists doing it right.

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.
