Lo Pararo is a multi-media artist, musician, poet, teacher, and all-around performer of many definitions and dimensions. As a non-binary individual, Lo’s poetic content expresses the human experience behind the eyes of someone struggling to embrace the “flesh-suit” they arrived on this earth in. Body dysphoria plagues so many more people than one might realize, and the more pressure put on people to live out the gender roles that are expected and assumed by those who blindly follow them, the more separated they will continue to become from one another, as well as from themselves. Lo’s poetry captures raw, human emotion— diving into the depths of existential crisis after separation anxiety attack, & covering the vast array of highs and lows that come about when sifting through this experience one calls “life.”
