Yola is a Queer Xicana femme, grad student at OSU, poet/writer, sex worker rights activist, performance artist whose focus is on negativity, subterranean thought, and Necropolitics [intersections of identities/decolonization]. “I think a lot about the private/public sphere.” Yola exists outside of/on the peripheries of academia as a proud impostor and accomplice. A first generation Xicana who grew up on the border of Mexico/US. The aesthetic of the Southwestern US/Mexico desert is very prominent in her work as a performance artist, speaker, writer. “I reside in the grotesque and persist in spite of it all.”
