I had an art professor say that “Orange County is a cultural wasteland.” I was like WTF? How well do you know the OC Barri@s??? Who are you to say that? People can be easily swayed when they do not take time to be properly educated by the elders, or when they are not connected to the spaces that they live in. As Chican@ people, we have always relied on alternative histories, as Indigenous people we have always relied on oral traditions what society calls “myth”. I have always known the OC to be a place of culture because of this rich history. In times before I lived this culture was present-when I die, culture will still be present. Most people I have met who are not from these neck of the woods assume that Orange County is part of Los Angeles. This art professor I had, who failed to see the immense presence of cultura around her, felt called to LA to get her fix of art, culture, lifestyle, whatever she was looking for, instead of opening her eyes and exploring the space she was in. The art made here, yes will be on a different scale than our LA counterparts. The culture here is definitely different depending where you are at in the County. The gangs are present here in OC Barrios like they are in other counties and cities as well. I noticed nobody has posted a list of the 34 cities of La Naranja so here they are…

Orange County Cities

  1. City of Aliso Viejo
  2. City of Anaheim
  3. City of Brea
  4. City of Buena Park
  5. City of Costa Mesa
  6. City of Cypress
  7. City of Dana Point
  8. City of Fountain Valley
  9. City of Fullerton
  10. City of Garden Grove
  11. City of Huntington Beach
  12. City of Irvine
  13. City of La Habra
  14. City of La Palma
  15. City of Laguna Beach
  16. City of Laguna Hills
  17. City of Laguna Niguel
  18. City of Laguna Woods
  19. City of Lake Forest
  20. City of Los Alamitos
  21. City of Mission Viejo
  22. City of Newport Beach
  23. City of Orange
  24. City of Placentia
  25. City of Rancho Santa Margarita
  26. City of San Clemente
  27. City of San Juan Capistrano
  28. City of Santa Ana
  29. City of Seal Beach
  30. City of Stanton
  31. City of Tustin
  32. City of Villa Park
  33. City of Westminster
  34. City of Yorba Linda

All of the names before you have alternative histories as well. To quote Mona aka “Sad Girl” from the film Mi Vida Loca, “our homeboys take pride in telling the history of our Barrio, because white people leave out a lot of shit when they tell it.” Take a look at the “history” of each city and you’ll find is a description of how each city was “founded”. It was founded by a “settler”, after the 1840’s when ½ of Mexico was taken and converted into U.S. territory, no mention of Ajachemen or Tongva tribes originally present here, and has streets named after “Pioneer” families, the Powerful, and wealthy land owners. If you ask members of these cities to tell you their histories the result will be somewhat different. These histories might include alternative names for their lands. Elders say they grew up in La Jolla, but you know they mean Placentia in general-Kind of Like identifying as Dine’ instead of Navajo, or calling it Puvunga instead of Cal State Long Beach.

As well as History, there is also Queerstory which not only tells of LGBTQ lucha but also tells stories that combat dominant ways of thinking, including but not limited to patriarchy, racism, sexism, and homophobia. Each City listed above and each Barrio listed below has its own unique and legitimate Queerstory just waiting to come out of the closet.

Today fearfully there are some who operate on the model: Chican@ people are not LGBTQ. Chican@ people live in Barrios. Barrios are assumed to be Gang territory. Therefore, all Chican@ people are “heterosexual”, live in Barrios, and are gang members. Obviously some are, but this is very far from the truth. These blogs seek to comBAT this mentality by presenting you with a Barrio where LGBTQ people are being recognized and their stories told.

Here listed are some of the Barrios I have collected which are names of actual clicas or Chican@ized apodos for the city. I know I am missing some, ayudame gente-leave them in the comment section or give a shot-out to your clica! Cheeeow!!

    Fountain Valley

    “COLONIA JUAREZ”
    A.k.a. The Swamp

    Since the 1930s, after the Mex Revolution
    Hence the name for the Barrio 7 original calles

    INDEPENDENCIA
    JUAREZ
    CINCO DE MAYO
    ZAPATA
    MADERO
    VILLA
    ZARAGOSA

    The place is on the map termed this day and age as The Colony
    a mis-translation into the English dictionary..
    COLONIA being translated as COLONY
    ^ ^ with way different meanings in the two languages

    in current maps, you can find the place just south of the Mile Square Golf Course
    cross streets being Warner Ave and Ward St

    The modern day CJ varrio as we tend to associate gangs with, started in the 1960s
    with the CHEVELLES Car Club., then later they became the CJ DEMONS

    once they got started having trouble in the gang sense, it was with the close-by HxBs
    ~> with the Huntington Beach Clovers and MoTowns

    CJ ever since has remained small and tight
    and their representation became mostly defunt by the 1980s
    even so, they’re still around

    COLONIA JUAREZ DEMONS
    “EL PANTANO BARRIO”

        Barrio Atwood is a small community that consists of chicano families that have been in that town for several generations. Its looks neat i remember it for its .oil pumps and train tracks oh yes ofcourse and its bridge to the park. Although its gangs and dramas are not too bad anymore. Its a goodthing. And well all the older families are still around in Atwood. I love that barrio i remember sundays hearing that old church bell …Atwood baby!!

    If you went back in time to the sixties, these places would have young Chicanos doing their thing. There would be car clubs in the sixties (Road Kings in SA, Travelers in AHM, Showdown in MC). There would be Social Clubs in the 50’s (Aces in SA, Penguins in AHM, Latin Gents in STN). There would be pachukos and Zoot suitors in the 40’s (Logan, Barrio Cypress, La Colonia Independencia). Everything else in OC came in or after the 70’s when low income apartments started to be built.

    • Drifts1 says:

      Pretty accurate, except Barrio Artesia isn’t part of Fxtroop as FT started as a social club within Barrio Artesia that grew to be the most infamous OC gang. Artesia & Ftroop merged into one barrio/gang back in 91′

    • ATD O*C 13 original says:

    these gangs are the reason a lot of people hate mexicans. Fighting over a stupid name or neighborhood is retarded and sad and nothing to be proud of I feel sorry for all you lowlifes. have fun in jail. dont drop the soap

    • OcChicano says:

      Well actually if you really knew about the history of Mexican-American street gangs you would know why the originals took so much pride in their neighborhood. If you knew more about Orange County you would know that La Colonia in Anaheim is/was known as Anaheim island because it was a rural area of Anaheim in the 1930’s with no electricity or plumbing. They started off as a car club on Katella ave and started a rivalry with the car club from Stanton. Once barrios and car clubs became gangs the Katella ave car club was known as Anaheim La Colonia and the Stanton car club was known as the Big Stanton gang. These gangs didn’t start over night they weren’t always violent or out to kill each other in fact the reason barrios started in California was to protect themselves from the racist and narrow minded people who didn’t like Hispanics. Another history lesson Westside La Habra Campo takes its name from an actual campsite where Hispanic farmers were forced to live in, well the next generation didn’t want to be stuck in the farm fields recieving low wages. The original cholos got their inspiration from the pachucos that came from Mexico, greasers and Italian mobsters. Like I mentioned earlier they didn’t start out as thugs,they were simply proud Mexican-Americans who just wanted a good time and to not be pushed around. Then drugs especially heroin in Orange County showed its presence and made low life’s and killers out of cholos, narcotics money and power is the result of cholos now and days, I can’t say all but for most. Also in the 70’s etc…people started losing family values and drugs took control of their lives, most kids now a days join gangs to fit in or feel loved or wanted by the gang, once they receive what they want so much, they’re willing to put their life on the line in a lot of cases. Trust don’t believe the stereotypes of Orange County that were all rich and white maybe in the hills or by the beach, I’ve had friends from LA witness with their own eyes believers of OC stereotypes witness a man Manuel “Stomper” Diaz shot in the leg and back on the floor begging for his life at point blank shot in the back of his head. All for looking suspicious when searched nothing illegal was found on him cops stated that he ran but residents and eyewitnesses stated he never did. We saw marines with tanks raid the Anna Drive neighborhood in Anaheim police dogs “accidently” released biting woman and children, residents being shot with pellet guns by Anaheim police officers right in front of their homes. Not even in LA have I ever witnessed a neighborhood raided by tanks and army men due to the fact that the police were scared to invade the neighborhood alone, that is completely mind boggling. After the riots and protests, news telecaster interviewed residents and they claimed “these “cholos” never cause us harm they look out for our neighborhood, they are like the police of the neighborhood.” “They don’t let no one steal from our community they don’t start problems with no one, its the police who come here looking for trouble shooting people because they have the power to do so.” “The police harass us because we’re mexican or look suspicious, but the cholos mind their own business.” The point is cholos or not cholos were all human beings as humans we all have the need to belong in any social group even you. I learned my stories from my grandpa he grew up in the La Jolla barrio in placentia in the 1940’s and lived all over Orange County. He told me cholos/pachucos weren’t always bad people. You have to live in a barrio to know about the barrio life. I agree though now and days alot of this new generation of cholos don’t know the meaning or story behind it all they just join gangs to look cool or fit in, and end up doing life behind bars, or 6 feet under at an early age. So the ones that make it out don’t be ashamed where you came from those streets made you who you are and if you could make it in the rough life of the barrio you can make it anywhere in life! Get that chip of your shoulder!

    • Dwayn Johnson says:

      Mexican mafia rule the prisons dumb ass …true gangsters fight one on one but their times u have to get the homies involved against another group never underestimate your adversaries. I recall the kkk Irish and Italians fought dirty!

    • Educated Chicano from Watts says:

      Every ethnicity has or had gangs … Just cuz you belong to neighborhood does not mean u need back up… The Italians never did their dirty work alone and nobody points that out! 100 percent Chicano southerner will take go at it one on one and those “lowlifes” who are actually the “Big Homies” in the inside run the show! Inside controls the outside! So take your ignorant silly ass cliches and stick them up your ass, maybe a shank made of harden soap! Next time think before you write or say something lame you stupid as scrap!

    • CARTOON LOCS says:

      you forgot about AHM UNDERHILL ST. they be banging since the 60’s i think mid 50’s

    • Drifts1 says:

      Some of those dates are so wrong. And there is a difference between when barrios started and when those barrios became active and earned status. Lopers did not exist in the 50’s, hahaha. Fxtroop started in the late 60’s as a social club within Barrio Arta which earned its status in the 50’s. Just an example of how off your dates are.

      • Old School Sureño says:

        Actually the varrio where Lopers started used to belong to a gang called Casinos in the early 70’s.

      • Eric Sanchez says:

        I actually thought FxTroop started in the 30s since everyone from Santa Ana says that. But the dates on the Anaheim gangs r actually correct. Like La Colonia n La fabrica have been here since the 30s.

  43. Dwayn Johnson says:

    True Chicanos and neighborhoods that been around after ww1 are proud that they don’t take shit from anybody. If u know history Mexican Americans have been fighting in U.s wars since the Revolution war and yet still considered inferior to the white race. They are proud for their service their country and yet they hate them but its not as open as before, well maybe a little more these days so if they don’t want them the warrior mentality are going to fight back at the white mans burden just how the are destroying black gangs through pure violence let be one on one or with their numbers! Back at u real men fight alone
