Let's get it poppin'! In this hilarious episode FavyFav and Babelito chat with their comadre Julio Salgado about his artwork, drag queens, Jenni Rivera, gorditas, and Latinx visibility in popular media! From his "Undocumented and Awkward" Youtube, series to his digital work in Culture Strike, Julio has been producing art that comments on the realities and ironies of being undocumented in the U.S. Julio also tells LWL why he titles his lectures "I'm an artist of color and I'm still alive" and the need for POC cultural makers to claim their own greatness.
