Black Celebration Month: Alan Pelaez

To Love and Mourn in the Age of Displacement: A Ceremony for #BlackLivesMatter and #MMIW

Alan Pelaez Lopez is an Afro-Indigenous writer from Oaxaca, México. Their writing explores the intersections of PTSD, undocumented immigration, Indigeneity, queer feelings, and futuristic envisioning. Their work has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize and Best of the Net and appears in Poetry Magazine, Everyday Feminism, Rewire News, Black Girl Dangerous, and elsewhere. You can find them laughing, crying, f*ing, cooking, mourning, and continuously making mistakes in Chochenyo Ohlone Land and at @migrantscribble.
