Bio

Born in San Francisco in 1992.
Raised in the industrial city of South San Francisco.
Got a BA in Writing and Literature from California College of the Arts in Oakland and SF.
Erika Delgado has dedicated their life to writing and to the Bay Area.
They were raised by two Mexican American Immigrants, youngest and only “girl” of three, and constantly motivated by their dreams, creativity, and catholic mexican guilt.
Erika has depression, anxiety, avoidant personality disorder, PCOS, Hashimotos Thyroiditis, Fibromyalgia, Asthma, many allergies, and well to say the least is mentally and chronically ill, but has focused on using creativity and kindness as a way to cope.
Music has been a large outlet for them, while they do make some in secret, they mainly obsess over music, and have dedicated a large chunk of their life to documenting and discovering music. They write about music, focusing on the emotions, experience, and story behind the tunes. They curate, produce, and promote shows that highlight the importance of diversity and kindness. They host a weekly music podcast, through San Francisco’s BFF.FM called Abuela’s Pantry which focuses on coping and using music to do so. Through and for BFF.FM they organize a monthly benefit show every third Saturday of the month called the Besties Bash.
They currently work part-time at the wonderful gallery and event space in the mission, The Laundry. 
Erika Delgado is queer, they are non-binary and asexual. Their writing has always been about oversharing and being honest not only with themselves but with the world.

I’m not religious. I define as agnostic, because I do not believe in ever telling someone what they have put their whole souls faith in is wrong. I was raised Catholic, still am very culturally Catholic.
