Gio Takes the States

Giovanni Escobedo found a home in the Rio Grande Valley after living in 34 different places! He came to the US by himself in search of safety, community, and work. He left Mexico to escape the violence queer folks were/are experiencing. He loves politics because he sees the change local communities can make when they come together. From organizing in high school to working at the state and national capitol--he’s all about it. He talks about the election in terms of the Valley while giving us a glimpse of his life living in a southern border city. “Everyone always talks about the RGV but they’ve never been here,” it is clear Gio has found community and LOVE in the RGV.
