Christian Aldana

Christian Aldana’s (she/they) poetry is a safe space for wicked and sinister femmes who hate imperialism.
They are a queer, multiracial Filipinx community organizer based in Chicago. Though she has a soft spot for the Midwest, part of her will always be in South East Asia (Cebu and Saigon) where she grew up. She is the founder and Creative Director of Luya, a poetry organization that centers the voices of people of color. Alongside their comrades at The Digital Sala, Christian is dreaming up alternative visions of what radically flexible, community-centered, revolutionary poetic spaces can be.

Their debut chapbook, “The Water We Swim In,” is forthcoming from Sampaguita Press in 2023.
