“Adventures of Bitter Fag” is artist Julio Salgado’s alter-ego. While he identifies as a silly gay who loves to crack jokes, there is a bitter part of himself that shows up when white supremacy, anti-blackness, homophobia, transphobia, and other societal phobias show up. Bitter Fag is here to ruin your day if you think that we’ve made it as an LGBTQI+ community when muscled cis-gay men are allowed to run shirtless during Pride while Black and brown trans folks are being murdered, jailed, and deported.
