“Undocumented Tales” is a YouTube web series that follows the journey of Fernando Gutierrez, an undocumented queer immigrant from Mexico living in U.S. Fernando’s story is one that is rarely told in the broader immigrant and LGBTQ communities, and one that is almost never told in mainstream media. The series serves as an online platform that brings together the intersections of immigration status, homophobia/transphobia, class, and race to portray the realities of what it means to both undocumented and queer in the United States.
