Who I am & what I do

I’m Gabby Rivera (she/her) and I’m a Bronx-born, queer Latinx writer. Currently, I’m writing AMERICA for Marvel comics. Writing Marvel’s first Latina lesbian character, America Chavez, is the most wild ride ever and I’m just happy to be here. Also, my YA novel, Juliet Takes a Breath is a thing you should read and then send a copy to your gay baby cousin. Anyway, Hi.

I also speak on my experiences as QTPOC writer, an LGBTQ youth advocate, and the importance of centering joy in our narratives as Latinx people and people of color.


America Chavez

America Chavez represents infinite hope and the power of taking action.
