Nasir Montalvo


Montalvo supports The Kansas City Defender through written work, support of its community survival programs, and developmental needs. Most notably, Montalvo is the Curator of a historical anthology series and moving exhibit highlighting Black queer Kansas Citians from the late 1900s to Present Day–aptly titled “Black/Queer Kansas City,” or B/QKC.

Before their move to Kansas City, Montalvo was deeply involved in campus organizing at their alma mater, Stevens Institute of Technology–founding the campus’ first safe space for marginalized students, and the movements #RenameGFH and #StevensForSolidarity in opposition to an academic building named after anti-gay Montana Governor, Greg Gianforte. Montalvo’s work has been featured in The Advocate, NPR, Teen Vogue, Cosmopolitan, HelloGiggles, GLAAD and various other local/national publications.

Montalvo is queer, Afro-Latine, and originally from Kissimmee, Florida.
