Alexa Vasquez is a trans woman of color and child migrant from the state of Oaxaca in Mexico. She is a multidisciplinary artist with a focus in painting, writing, and fashion. Her work is autobiographical, poetic and political and her visual artworks are inspired by Oaxaca, by the experience of a migrant longing to make it back home. Her writings are memories of growing up in an immigrant household, leaving home, transitioning, and exploring trans womanhood. She is currently beginning her journey in teaching. She joins The Action Lab out of a need for rest, travel, and exploration – life in the U.S is really tough (physically and mentally) for those living at the intersection of the Queer/Trans and Immigrant movement.
