Gabby Rivera: Queer Latinx Writer for "America Chavez" and Critically Acclaimed "Juliet Takes A Breath"
The Texas State Justice Series presents Gabby Rivera, first queer Latina writer for Marvel Comics’ America Chavez and the critically acclaimed Juliet Takes a Breath. The keynote event will be followed by a Q&A session with students, staff and faculty.
America Chavez is a fictional superheroine appearing Marvel Comics. The character was relaunched in her own comic in 2017; she is Marvel’s first Latinx LGBTQIA to star in their own series. She fights for justice and takes on crime – and she’s a college student. Rivera not only uses her own voice but engages the diversity of her intersectional identity to create change in her many communities.
