Artist and Journalist Julio Salgado: Queer, Undocumented and Unafraid

Photo by Diandra Jay/Press-TelegramEarlier this year, Julio Salgado’s immigrant rights artwork appeared on my Tumblr feed and I’ve made it a priority to follow this activist’s online presence. His “I am UndocuQueer!” art project unflinchingly addresses the intersections of ethnicity and sexual orientation and  also elevates the public activism of undocumented immigrants.

In an interview with Multi-American, Salgado speaks frankly about “coming out” as both an undocumented immigrant and a queer man.  When asked about his art’s prominence in the DREAM Act movement and his artistic depictions of queer immigrant youth, he said, “If there’s a queer aspect to my artwork is not accidental. I do it on purpose. I want other folks to know that when you’re for social justice, it has to be across the board.”
