Yoseñio was an organizer of and Key Volunteer for the TrannyFest TransGenre Film Festival, the first Trans film festival in the U.S. All of these artistic entities are devoted to increasing the visibility of the Trans and People of Color communities as well as to address the significant concerns of those communities.
Yoseñio has been featured in several documentaries, inlcuding "Diagnosing Difference," a full-length documentary about the impact and implications of the Gender Identity Disorder (GID) on the lives and communities of those on the gender spectrum.
