Hello and welcome back to Non/Native, the podcast that shares conversations between female immigrants, expats and interlopers. This episode features an interview with Diana Gameros, a Mexican musician and activist living in the Bay Area.
Diana came to the USA as an undocumented teenager, and her journey to establish permanent residency and the love for her homeland is infused into the music she creates. It was an honor to talk to her about her experience living "in the shadows" while studying, and the emotional moment she was able to go back to Mexico for the first time in 16 years.
That particular trip was captured on film in the documentary 'Dear Homeland', produced by KQED, which has just been nominated for a Cine Las Americas award, and will be screened as part of their virtual showcase on July 18th. More details here: https://www.instagram.com/dearhomelandfilm/
