Hi, I'm Ruben👋🏽(he/they) I'm a writer, comedian, and public speaker... but you might know me as "Queer Xicano Chisme." I run a curate content and deliver critique on my multi-platform blogs on Facebook/Instagram, host a podcast, and deliver socio-cultural criticism, jokes, and education on Twitter.

I want to make it clear that all of my social media content will remain free, because I think making my knowledge, critiques, and wit accessible can help a lot of folks grow (including myself!).

However I want to embark on new creative journeys (like videos) but these take time and resources that I don't have right now. SO I could really use some support! I know a lot of folks have said they've learned a lot from me and have asked for ways to compensate me for that, so here's your chance!

So, you might ask... 

"What is Patreon"?
Well, lemme answer, beloved. Patreon is a website that helps you support your favorite creators by giving you the option to make monthly donations. They can be as little as $1 a month to as much as $50 (in my case). You can cancel your subscription at ANY time.

"What do I get out of supporting your lil queer ass?"
A lot actually! Depending on your commitment, there's different rewards but some dope low cost ones are things like: access to exclusive posts, livestreams, bonus cuts from my videos and podcasts, as well as a look at my unreleased works of fiction!

"Damn, girl. I can't afford to give you shit 😕" 
AND THAT'S SUPER COOL. I don't expect ALL of my followers to donate to me, but I know I have many followers that can, and many more that have expressed desire to compensate me for my labor. Also, I never want folks to feel like they're making a sacrifice by supporting my work; I literally just want your chunk change if you have any to spare!🤷🏽

You can also support my work by sharing my Patreon (or having your school/community book me for a speaking gig by e-mailing me at: [email protected])

With your help I can hopefully fulfill my long term goal of being a full time indie creator!! I thank you so much in advance for even CONSIDERING giving me ANY amount.





Side bar: if a one time donation is more your thing than a monthly subscription, you can hit up my other links. Honestly anything would be dope!

At this level I'd be able to set aside one day every week to focus on creating major original content (be it video, essay, and/or podcast). This would be HUGE.
