Love and Horror
by Sonia Gomez
I am in love with Yesika Salgado's poetry and highly recommended her books, Corazon and Tesoro. Her poems explore intimacy, race/ethnicity, and politics from the perspective of a self-proclaimed "fat, fly, and brown" poet. For more on her poetry, activism, and other work, check out her website.

Lovecraft Country (HBO) is a year old, but if you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it even if you are not a fan of H.P. Lovecraft's fiction (I am not) or have not read any of his works (I have not). The series isn't perfect but it offers a lot to unpack around issues of race, gender, sexuality, and war with a historical perspective. Be warned there is a lot of horror both real and imagined.
