Taller Puertorriqueno unveils new Latino LGBT exhibit
As part of the Philly’s celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Reminder Day demonstrations, GALAEI and Taller Puertorriqueño collaborated to present “En Blanco y Negro: Gay & Boricua,” an exhibition of the artwork of Philadelphia native, José Luis Cortés.
Cortés’ artwork is inspired by his time in New York City in the early 1990’s and reflects “the underbelly of gay life – documenting a life on the fringes of society: of sex workers, addiction, and of a changing landscape,” according to Taller Puertorriqueño.
As part of the exhibition, a panel discussion on issues affecting the LGBTQ Latino community will be held at Taller Puertorriqueño on June 20.
The “En Blanco y Negro: Gay & Boricua” exhibition runs until July 25.
