About Carlos in DC
Carlos in DC is a personal blog that I started by December 2007. I’m an undocumented gay immigrant living in Washington DC, and I blog mostly about the city’s places, cultures, peoples and politics, about the Latino community and immigration related topics. Follow me in Twitter as @CarlosQC
- As a migrant, I write about the impact of the U.S. government policies on the peoples of the Americas, policies created mostly in Washington, DC, especially immigration.
- As a person of Native heritage, I write about Latinos in the U.S. who are mostly Indigenous and Afro descendants among other heritages.
- As a gay Two-Spirit person, I blog also about LGBT rights in the U.S.
