In The Intersectional Other, Alex Rivera deconstructs the history of power in the United States, critiquing the white colonialism and heteronormativity evident in psychological and medical literature and rejecting the deficiencies projected onto queer Black, Indigenous, and Other People of Color (BIPOC). Rivera compels her readers to envision a world where Intersectional Others hold not just power, but the capacity to evoke societal transformations through creativity, self-love, and revolution. The Intersectional Other boldly reimagines the margins, creating a radical space for readers to de-vilify Otherness and conjure a better future.
