Yosimar Reyes is a internationally acclaimed poet, educator, performance artist and public speaker. He was born in Guerrero, Mexico and raised in Eastside San Jose. He is the co-founder of La Maricolectiva, a community based performance group of queer undocumented poets. Reyes holds a B.A in Creative Writing from San Francisco State University and is an Arts Fellow at Define American (DefineAmerican.Com)
He is working to change the narrative of undocumented people in the US by shifting the perspective from stories entrenched in pain to stories focused on undocumented people's joy, pleasure, and commitment to thrive.
