Carlos

C. A. Bardalez was born in Peru, raised in Miami and studied English at the University of South Florida in Sarasota, where he presently resides. He is a freelance writer and performance poet, who has shared the stage with the likes of Hellen Pruitt Wallace, Poet Laureate of St. Petersburg, and Juan Felipe Herrera, former US Poet Laureate. Bardalez is an Operation Iraqi Freedom veteran, who came of age during the Don’t-Ask-Don’t-Tell era; and has since become a vocal member of local political organizations to create a space and presence for LGBT members like him. As he might mention, some words to live by: “if you’re not at the table, you’re on the table.”
