Book Description: Quererme En La Luz is an unapologetic journey, a spiritual philosophy, a militant manifesto, a harmonious and chaotic retelling of the author’s experiences as a trans Latina navigating the gulf coast of Texas. This collection of poetry reflects the fluid divinity essential to trans womanhood while remaining grounded to the perceivable world and all its dangers, its trite wonders too.

Praise for Quererme en La Luz
"In Quererme en la Luz the transexual faggy poetic voice stops licking the floors of the institutions that submit her into a minor yet hyper policed existence. Mouth to mouth, the reader comes across a tongue that enchants, threads and savours on the everyday joys of marginal life. These poems open wounds in my mouth that i can’t stop licking. These wounds are portals where i am assured that even after all the witch burnings, their knowledge and heaviness remain in the air for me to grab and dress myself with." - F. Tibiezas Dager, visual artist and author of Homosexual encounters with Pancho Jaime.
