When I visited Cali, Colombia last summer I had the honor of meeting the incredible Valerie and Macu. Valerie is a Black trans woman. Macu is a Black self described marica/non binary person. I interviewed them and put together a documentary. The sound files were lost forever and its put together very crudely. But even then part of said interview ended up premiering at Twitter’s Afrolatinx Film Night this past February. Very grateful to Val and Macu and to Twitter for the space to let them tell their stories. Here are some photos from the event and the video. The full interview is still being subtitled and edited and should be available by Spring 2020.

I had so much fun with Hannah late last year talking about my presence on social media. It was released in January and is now being shown at the Baltimore Museum of Art and CCCB’s Influencer conference in Barcelona. I had no idea until my followers started tagging me!
This spring I had the honor of doing keynotes and talks on Afrolatinidad and Latina sexuality at Stanford, Emory, CSU, Depaw University, among others. Very grateful and looking forward to whats in the store for the future.
This summer I had the honor of being on Blossom TV (a channel for women of color, by a Black woman and all Black girl technical crew) in collaboration with AintiLatina.com, . It was an amazing experience and I got to talk and vibe with some brilliant, beautiful ground-breaking AfroLatinas about issues affecting us. Catch it at WatchBlossom.com.
