In her poetry collection, Everybody's Bread (Kórima Press, 2015), Claudia Rodriguez counters the negative narratives of life in her home town of Compton and celebrates her Mexican heritage and the freedom she finds in expressing her sex, sensuality and love.  In 2016, she received an Artists in Residence Grant from the City of Los Angeles, Dept. of Cultural Affairs, creating a show-stopping multi-media performance, part of the Downtown LA "Grant Performances" series. She is a founding member of Butchlalis de Panochtitlan, a sketch-driven group that performed widely for ten years. Her work has appeared in Mexican American Baseball in the Pomona Valley (Arcadia Publishing, 2014), Baby Remember My Name: An Anthology of New Queer Girl Writing, edited by Michelle Tea (Carroll & Graf Publishers, 2007), and in Chicana/Latina Studies: the journal of MALC.
