A very warm welcome to TJFP’s third 2016 panelist, Fabian Romero.
Fabian is a Queer Indigenous writer, performance artist and activist.

Fabian was born in Michoacán, Mexico and came to North America when they were seven years old. Since 2007 they have performed and facilitated workshops throughout North America. They have a BA with a focus in Social Justice Writing and Education and will be pursuing a higher ed degree, TBD. Find more of their work at fabianromero.com.
Looking forward to your brilliance Fabian!
