In 2017, Soto received the community fellowship "open places initiative" through Open Society Foundations. With his youth fellowship, Soto created a series of photo stories highlighting LGBTQ+ Undocumented Americans living in San Diego, California, in hopes of elevating their voices and creating solidarity amongst both communities.
