“I would like to see the Chicano movement be more inclusive and welcome people who are not Mechistas or who have different ideas. When I first tried to be involved with the Chicano movement, I was laughed at. I was really into glitter, I looked funny, and I was made to feel like a weirdo who couldn’t possibly be serious about my Chicanisma. Those people are trying to keep others out. Since I didn’t look like them or listen to the same music, I wasn’t seen as political enough, and that’s detrimental to the Chicano cause. If the cause is equality, we need to include as many people as possible, including people from other races. ” - Alice Bag, January 2012 interview with SF Weekly.
