El is a queer / transgender / nonbinary / Chicanx / Xicanx community activist and comedian who joined PK in 2018 after being asked to perform at a Pizza Klatch fundraiser. El grew up all over Washington state, from a small farming community in Lewis County to the Quinault Tribal Nation on the Olympic Peninsula, but they've always called Olympia home. They graduated from The Evergreen State College in 2005 with a Bachelor’s Degree focused in constitutional law, tribal law and social justice. They have been a featured performer and speaker at queer comedy shows, Pride events and LGBTQ+ focused panels and discussions throughout the country. They are excited to utilize both their lived experience and their background in LGBTQ+ community organizing and outreach to benefit queer and trans youth, especially those in smaller communities like the ones they came from.
