Ale Canales

Ale Canales would have liked to have been born as a horse 400 years ago and would like to die in space. They graduated from Yale University’s Ethnicity, Race, & Migration program with a concentration on Trans Studies in Latin America, where they also stage-managed shows and ran ¡Oye!, Yale’s Latine spoken-word group. They are known for their nimble fingers and impressive amounts of ADHD.

Ale is currently based in Mexico City, where they founded and run the Archivo de la Vida Trans and live out their sexy little T4T fantasies. Their life’s goal is to learn how to do everything.
