I want to thank Santiago Escobar-Jaramillo for supporting the project since day one, pushing me to expand and publish it! About a year ago I was telling him all my ideas for the format of the book and he transformed all that jumble of possibilities into an accordion of non-linear narratives about sex, depression and identity. It's incredibly beautiful when creative visions come together to create. Thank you infinitely!!!!

I thank my anchors, collaborators and loved ones who have held my hand and supported me every step of the way Andrea Narváez, Salomé Jüey, and Puma. I love you. ❤

Quiero agradecer tantísimo a Santiago Escobar-Jaramillo quien desde la primera vez que le mostré el proyecto me impulsó a expandirlo y publicarlo. Hace casi un año le contaba sobre mis ideas para el formato y ese revulú de posibilidades lo transformó en un acordeón de narrativas no-lineales sobre sexo, depresión e identidad. Es hermoso cuando las visiones creativas se juntan a crear. Infinitamente gracias!!!!

Agradezco a mis anclas, colaboradorxs y seres queridxs que me han acompañado durante todo el camino Andrea Narváez, Salomé Jüey y Puma. Les amo. ❤
