About Pharr From Heaven

Hi! My name is Eduardo Martinez from Neta RGV. I started writing in the Rio Grande Valley originally on Yahoo Groups under the name RGV Observer in 2003. I continued writing and eventually launched the Pharr From Heaven (inspired by my hometown and by Todd Haynes' great film Far From Heaven) blog in 2009.

I tend to focus my writing on very specific interests of me: barrio history, the Rio Grande Valley, professional wrestling, conjunto music, organizing history, critiques of non-profit organizations, sports, issues affecting poor and working class communities, the Texas Farm Workers Union, LGBTQ history and issues, and analysis of the world I live in.

During the past 10 years I have written for The Monitor newspaper, the Festiva magazine, She Shreds magazine, Neta RGV, The Gotch Special, been featured on Texas Monthly, and worked on a variety of other projects including co-organizing Aqui Estamos RGV, Curando RGV, and as the photographer for Fuerza del Valle Workers Center. In addition to new material and never before seen work, this Patreon will also serve as an archive of my previous writings and work. 

If you have any questions, feel free to email me: [email protected]
