This month our feature poet is yes the poet!

estefania alfonso falcon (they/she/he), also known as yes, is a radical genderfluid queer cubanx migrant, poet, tattoo artist, educator, and activist living in and around Kiji’buktuk (Halifax) in Mi’kma’ki, after spending the last five years in the Dish With One Spoon, or many (Toronto).

 

as and organizer and member of community, they’ve worked with No One Is Illegal – Toronto, the Mining Injustice Solidarity Network, the End Immigration Detention Network, the Spoken Word Canada board, One Mic Educators 2.0, and they are a founding member of the Voices of Today national youth slam festival organizing committee, which they are celebrating their final year with in 2019, as they age out of youth organizing.

 

yes’s poetry is a blend of vulnerable rage and self-celebrating humour. they believe in the destruction of the heteropatriarchy, borders, and the capitalist police state.  their intention is to learn so loudly that others have no choice but to follow suit, and they’re just so stoked for our collective growth.
