A critical performance ethnography, this essay exposes the performative moments Latina drag queens offer through their borderland of identifications and disidentifications with dominant social norms. Drawing upon Latina/o Studies, Performance Studies and Communication for its theoretical grounding, the study forefronts Brown as a racial discourse with both bodily and spatial implications. The study demonstrates the intersectional complexities embodied and performed by Latina drag queens and how these performative moments challenge and rescript both normative and non-normative assumptions. These performative moments provide embodied representations of the intersectional complexities of social locations; thus offering insight into how these negotiations intricately work through the body and showing how these performances politically de-center hegemonic identity norms.
