Raquel V. Reyes

Raquel V. Reyes is a member of the UU Congregation of Miami, where she's a past worship chair, and a co-organizer of Biscayne Unitarian Church (2012-2014). Her poetry and fiction often focus on identity and place. "Representation matters" is a chorus she chants. Raquel's quince writings are in honor of her Cuban heritage, her husband's Puerto Rican-Dominican heritage and the teenagers in her congregation -- many of whom, like her own teen, are gender non-conforming. Raquel wanted to give their generation new words to modernize a cultural tradition that is important to Latinx heritage.
