Mar León (they/them, fae/femme) on being the monster that’s under your bed

Mar León is a lot like nature: their gender cycles with the passage of each season, they are justifiably angry about the impact of capitalism, and they are tired of white people-centric approaches to problem-solving.

Mar is raising their voice and fighting for justice in the face of oppressive systems designed to disempower their communities. As a disability justice advocate, Mar’s efforts are focused through the lens of community care, interdependence, and communal abundance-making, with the understanding that scarcity is falsely created by state control over our resources.

Through their poetry, Mar highlights their experiences as a disabled, gender cyclical, non-binary Boricua in the often visceral texts of “bible perverses” and monster literature, in which they reclaim the ableist trope of “monsterhood.”

I learned a lot from Mar in our time together, and I’m confident that you will, too.

This episode mentions ableism, codependency, police brutality, environmental racism, and white supremacy.

This is Mar León on being the monster that’s under your bed.
