[Christopher Soto; Lambda Literary Foundation.;] -- In , Christopher Soto and Lambda Literary Foundation founded the online journal Nepantla, with the mission to nurture, celebrate, and preserve diversity within the queer poetry community.

Structured around Anzaldúa’s visit to an exhibit of Mesoamerican culture and art, this chapter builds on and expands previous discussions of spiritual mestizaje and aesthetics, grounding them in a theory of “border arte”–a disruptive, potentially transformative, decolonizing creative practice–called “the Coyolxauhqui process.”.

    Nightboat Books, a nonprofit organization, seeks to develop audiences for writers whose work resists convention and transcends boundaries, by publishing books rich with poignancy, intelligence and risk. The first years that I pondered this quote by Anzaldúa, I felt attracted to her definition of the word “Nepantla.” The feeling of transience and displacement and ever shifting boundaries that the word “Nepantla” can hold, as defined by Anzaldúa, allowed a method for me to understand my race, gender, and sexuality.
