Ariel Estrella -


Ariel Estrella is a queer Latinx/e scholar hailing from Queens, NYC. Ariel is pursuing a PhD in Literatures in English at Cornell University, specializing in queer of color lyricism and art. To guide their research and creative work, Ariel asks: what does lyricism offer queer creators of color in the midst of racism and cultural celebration; homophobia and queer kinship; transphobia and gender possibility? And, in turn, what do queer creators of color offer lyrical creative enterprises with their experiments in form? Ariel’s essays and poems have been featured in several anthologies; independent zines; and an undergraduate newspaper column on the politics of love. @arielmestrella
