Erika Lopez has been active as a performance artist, writer, and graphic novelist since the 1990s. Lopez’s work is emblematic of a transition from second-wave feminism and identity-based lesbian activism to a third-wave, queer approach to gender, sexual, and other difference categories, using humor and a creative politics of the in-between which disturbs generational, sexual, gendered, and ethnic binarisms alike. This essay examines how, through the use of intermedial spaces and gaps, such work accomplishes a mediation between two generations of feminists that are often set in opposition in contemporary debates, and argues for the importance of a verbal and visual bridging of the feminist generation gap. Texts like Lopez’s, this article argues, critically negotiate a collective feminist memory, acknowledging difference but not division.
