Race Gender and Sexuality conference Performing “La Professora” from Mastering Sex & Tortillas! on Friday, March 18, 2011 at 6:00 p.m. in Billings Lounge North. The performance is FREE and open to the public.

Part stand-up, part performance art, part teatro, not to mention exciting and fresh improvisations--this unique show has lots of buttery Xicana flavor. Mastering Sex & Tortillas! is a hilarious and unflinching examination of Xicana/Latina lesbian sexuality.

As an educator/cultural activist, Adelina has over 15 years of experience mentoring and instructing on political teatro, acting, and creative writing to youth of color and lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender/two-spirited communities of color, as well as university students -- of all colors.
