I'm putting my queer shoulder to the wheel.
I'm a writer, educator, and curator born in Medellín, Colombia and currently living in Brooklyn, New York engaged at many intersections: of words and images, of queerness and migration, of theory and practice.
I sort through the world with a bag full of notebooks and drafts often too heavy on my shoulders.
I have stanzas of poetry floating around in my head.
One of the poems I come back to again and again is Allen Ginsberg's "America." Its quips and concerns end with this line of driven self-determination and creation: "America, I'm putting my queer shoulders to the wheel."
This insisting queering bleeds into my writing, programming, and teaching. I’m committed to community building, particularly in art spaces.
