About Our Feature

yes, or estefania is a radical queer migrant based in the tkaronto area, on the northern half of turtle island. they believe in the destruction of the heteropatriarchy, borders, and the capitalist police state. they come to poetry through the cuban traditions of being a dramatic lover and never shutting up.

yes has performed on stages across what is colonially known as canada, having become a national champion in 2014. they are on the Voices of Today national youth festival organizing committee and are heavily invested in building a stronger, and more radical, national community of poets/humans. they write a lot about state violence, their feelings (they have so many), and resistance. yes also organizes with No One Is Illegal – Toronto and the Mining Injustice Solidarity Network.

a self-proclaimed chill dude: yes is okay most days and sometimes even great – but at the very least, they never fail to entertain.
