cvllejerx is the product of our multicultural inbetweenness as immigrants and first generation immigrants and the violent colonization and subsequent diaspora of colOmbia, mexico, and africa, which informs our mestizx and black experiences in america. cvllejerx was born in the whitest city in america, portland, that has deep-seated white supremacist roots. with this and other historical and contemporary circumstances in mind, it is urgent for us to reclaim space in this city. we merge fashion, performance, and poetry as a form of resistance. through the engagement of voice, clothing, and physical movement, we are reclaiming authorship. choosing what we wear, what we say, and how we move, we are amplifying ourselves with tools accessible to us.
