Eli is a queer and transmasculine Chinese-Cuban American pretty boi. He was born and raised on the East Coast and grew up in Minnesota. He attended Webster University in St. Louis, Missouri and received his BA in Advertising/Marketing Communications. It wasn’t until after college when Eli went through his own personal journey and transition that he found his passion for advocating and organizing with his queer and transgender community in St. Louis. During his time there, Eli worked directly with queer and trans young people, facilitating support spaces for them. He also created a safe space for queer and trans folks of color to exist with one another. When he is not working, you can probably find Eli riding his bike around town, singing and dancing to music in his head, or shamelessly trying to (or making someone else) take new photos of himself and his fashion for all of social media to see.
