Alyza Enriquez is a Peabody award-winning producer for Vice News whose work focuses on telling humanizing stories about resourcefulness within marginalized communities, counter-cultural movements, and the people pushed to the fringes of society.
Alyza has long been committed to authentically representing what it means to be trans in America and beyond. In the past year, their work has centered on illuminating the roots and impacts of the growing, conservative-led movement to roll back LGBTQ rights.
In 2021, alongside a team of queer journalists, they created, produced, and hosted Vice News’ series Transnational, which documents the fight for transgender rights across the globe. The series went on to win numerous awards including a Peabody and a GLAAD award. Their episode about two spirit land defenders also won a Native American Journalist Association award.
Alyza also works as a photographer. In 2021, they executed the second iteration of the Gender Spectrum Collection, a stock photography project that aims to fill the lack of trans and non-binary representation in everyday images. In 2022, the project was awarded a Bronze Cube for the Art Directors Club Photography: Design for Good Award and first place for Photography: Citizen Design at the Print Awards.
Alyza has worked for VICE since 2017 and is based in Brooklyn.
