I Am Undocumented | Ken Gonzales | TEDxUofIChicago

Ken uses art to explore his unique status as a gay, undocumented Asian living in America. In this talk, he performs an emotionally moving spoken word poetry piece.

Ken is a gay, undocumented Asian American of the 1.5 generation hailing from the islands of the Philippines. His interests lie in understanding the intersections of race, politics, and art as they pertain to identity, history, and activism. His work is influenced by the following quote: “If you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.”

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more athttp://ted.com/tedx
