In 2017 I received a fellowship through Open Places Initiative with Open Society Foundations. This fellowship has allowed me to invest all of my creative energy into this photo project. I have been working on these series of photo stories the past year and a half. This photo project is one that I connect to in so many levels. I got to connect with people who are going through similar feelings and struggles through this political climate. I hope our stories create a change in the way people perceive not just undocumented people but also those undocumented people who also go through LGBTQ issues. I hope to continue using my lens to tell more of our stories as UNDOCUQUEER individuals.
