About

“…We Say Fight Back!” is an on-going visual account of various social justice movements led by and for trans, gender non-conforming, two-spirit, and queer people of color in New York City. This particular exhibit examines the intersections of immigration, policing, and people’s access to self-determination and freedom of movement from 2013-2015.

Julieta Salgado is a queer femme Latina artist & aspiring sociologist from Brooklyn, NY via Manabi, Ecuador. She is a photographer, an occasional poet, a secret singer, and habitual insurgent.

Her visual work documents social justice movements in both Ecuador and the US, most recently focusing on trans and queer immigrants of color in NYC. Through her self-portraiture, she also explores themes of queer sexuality, gender expression, femme identity, desire, depression, death, trauma, ancestry, coloniality, diaspora & creative tactics for destabilizing white power structures.
