Google has today dedicated its famous “Doodle”, the searcher’s logo, to the Chicano writer and teacher Gloria Evangelina Anzaldúa, who was recognized for her work in favor of the feminist struggle and the homosexual community.
Anzaldua, who would have turned 75 today, died on May 15, 2004 and was born in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas, although much of his career was in California.
Winner of several literary awards and lesbian groups such as the Lesbian Rights Award, the Chicana author of the book “Borderlands / La Frontera: The New Mestiza”, which alternates English and Spanish and combines prose and poetry.
With this tribute in his search engine in the United States, Google celebrates “Anzaldúa’s ability to live across borders, whether geographical, social or philosophical.”
This “Doodle” coincides with the celebration in the United States of Hispanic Heritage Month, which from September 15 to October 15 highlights the legacy and culture of the country’s Latino community.
