Yosimar Reyes and Julio Salgado are the self-proclaimed "Kelly and Beyonce" of the Bay Area undocuqueer art scene. In this interview, Yosimar opens up about almost getting deported on the way to perform for Carlos Santana, what was going on behind the scenes in this "Undocumented and Awkward" video, and what he said on Tumblr that got him into trouble. Other highlights include:
- when (and how) he started getting paid for his poetry,
- how he got his first chapbook published, and
- why "safe space" isn't always accessible space.
