As a self-described visual anthropologist, Laurel Golio is enthralled by how people identify and present themselves, how they navigate the world and how they fit into various subcultures. Emiliano Granado has seen over the past four years of working together that Golio is a “real human” who has “been making significant work. Instead of trying to make work that will get her jobs, she’s been working on a project that changes young people’s lives,” he says. Golio began her “We Are the Youth” project to raise the visibility of queer youth in America. “She’s one of the best people I know,” Granado says.
