Summary
Riot grrrl Rita, a working class mixed race child of Quechua/Argentine and Yugoslavian ancestry, published this zine sporadically from 1995-1999. Struggling with issues of assimilation, culture, her relationship with her immigrant father, and identity, she connects with the riot grrrl movement in Canada and in the United States. She also confronts her own skinny, youth and Christian privilege and discusses anti-Semitism. Her "How to Be an Enlightened Whitey" essay sparked a large response when it was published in 1996. Interspersing Spanish and English, the personal zine is handwritten and typewritten and contains journal entries, drawings, clip art, and reviews, in addition to essays. Fatila, bisexual, explores issues of gender and race, including butch versus femme, identification and racial presentation for Latinas, and genderfucking in popular culture.
