Franklin Cruz is a queer latin poet born in Idaho, raised in Texas, and polished in Denver. Born from an immigrant family, he works at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, is an emcee, and dances. A TedxMileHigh performer, he has taught and performed in the southwest, Peru, Puerto Rico, for universities and environmental leadership camps, and has had poetry in the Denver Art Museum. His work encompasses self love, immigration, culture, nature, and more.  Franklin always aims to address intersectional liberation, confronting our complicity to privilege and oppression, and the pressing lesson of specificity over simplicity.
