Gabriel Ojeda-Sague 

Gabriel Ojeda-Sague is a queer Latino Leo who grew up in Miami but now lives in Philadelphia. His first book Oil and Candle (Timeless Infinite Light, 2016) enacts imaginary and real rituals related to Latino syncretist magic in search of a response to American racism, war, and the deaths of Latino people in the United States. He is also the author of the chapbooks JOGS (2013), a re-writing of the popular 1977 guidebook The Joy of Gay Sex, Nite [Chickadee]'s (GaussPDF, 2015), a collection of Cher's tweets on systematic racism and violence, and Where Everything is in Halves (Be About It, 2015), poems against death written through The Legend of Zelda.
