Why does the world need to learn more about your story’s movement?

We believe that there is no feminism possible without transfeminism. The trans high school Mocha Celis enlightens us with a very rich experience that intersects gender, identity and social class, where feminism and education are key political tools in the construction of a society without oppression and is more equitable, pluralistic and democratic.

What was the most surprising discovery you made during your research?

We were surprised to see the role of education close up as a key tool for inclusion to think about ourselves, project ourselves, understand ourselves and weave networks, and also the way in which education and affectivity are linked. We were also surprised to learn about the impact and power of educational inclusion, which far transcends its field and opens the doors for inclusion in other fields.

What aspect have you found most challenging during the process so far?

One of the most challenging aspects of the project was finding a tone and a color in the narrative, both in the drawings and in the text. For us as a team, this opened up questions about the graphic and visual representations of other identities, and also about the use of language and the way of recounting. To solve these challenges we work closely with the La Mocha team at every step.
