Bianca Garay is a Queer Caribbean art illustrator from Brooklyn, New York. She is on a mission to spread authentic and visibly inspiring messages to communities around the world. She has close familial ties to the NYCHA developments in the Lower East Side and wants to create artwork that amplifies the lives of NYCHA residents. Her aim is to show youth that following your dreams is possible regardless of where you grew up. “People hear you come from housing and they assume negative things about a person and the way they grew up. I want to show the youth that we are more than our environment.” Garay believes following your dreams is the way to unify and usher in the world we truly envision.
