Documenting Joy: Shifting Narratives in Undocumented Storytelling with Yosimar Reyes

  • 219 Aaron Burr Hall Princeton, NJ USA (map)

Yosimar Reyes is a nationally acclaimed poet, educator, performance artist and public speaker. Born in Guerreo, Mexico and raised in Eastside San Jose, Reyes explores the themes of migration and sexuality in his work. His first collection of poetry, “For Colored Boys Who Speak Softly…” was self published and has toured and presented in University campuses all over the United States. He is the co-founder of performance ensemble, La Maricolectiva, a community based performance group of queer undocumented poets.

Reyes’ work has been published in various online journals as well as Mariposas: An anthology of Queer Modern Latino Poetry (Floricanto Press), Queer in Aztlán: Chicano Male Recollections of Consciousness and Coming Out (Cognella Press) and the forthcoming Joto: An Anthology of Queer Xicano & Chicano Poetry (Kórima Press)

PULPO and Princeton DREAM Team are pleased to bring Yosimar to campus and continue conversations around artivism, undocuqueer identities, and the power of community. If you are interested in having lunch with Yosimar, email PULPO ( for more information.
