Gata Salvaje aims to honor the rage of those who are a part of intersectional marginalized communities. Gata sparks conversations by touching on multiple intersections of power dynamics and cultural norms we don’t often question.
Gata’s “how to” workshops are meant to help others find some sort of agency in navigating bureaucracies that are meant to confuse and frustrate us.

Gata is an Afro Caribeña queer femme who was born and raised in San Francisco, CA. She was inspired to create merchandise when she was censored on social media for stating her political points of view and statement “Men are Trash”
Since then, Gata has created more merchandise and art revolving around themes highlighting power dynamics that exist in different intersections. Gata explains that any struggle for liberation that does not include an intersectional lens only continues to reinforce existing power dynamics. Capitalism, Sexism, Cissexism, Ableism, Racism, Colorism, Classism, Homophobia, etc. all uphold their power with each other, and cannot exist without one another.
Gata is currently based in Los Angeles, CA. All merchandise is either hand silk screened or heat pressed by Gata herself.
