Meet Gaby-O

My first email was "the" #StayGold

Who am I?

 I could tell you I'm Dominican, a woman, Latina, a daughter, a sister, a Godmother, aunt and a friend.

Everything else is always changing.

Things I love:

Communicating  with silence. 

Selena Quintanilla.

Doritos and lucky charms (together)


Gabriel Garcia Marquez (tocayo)

A doll's House


Making people laugh

listening/watching old James Baldwin tapes

Calle 13 / Residente 

Juan Luis Guerra

Agua de Coco

Poetry that breathes new life into my days.

Museums and all the curious characters in them.

Dancing in grocery stores

Singing through my excuses.

A walk on the beach. In Santo Domingo.

A warm cup of coffee at an indecent hour.

A good cry following a good laugh


And the manifestation of love, always.
