Caricias for LA Metro Lightbox Series, 2022

Hollywood & Highland Station

A multimedia project around migrant LGBTQ+ tribute artists who embody and perform as iconic divas in the Latinx community such as Jenni Rivera, Juan Gabriel, Celia Cruz, Chalino Sanchez, Selena and Paquita la del Barrio. Often performing at backyard tent parties, first communions, weddings and quinceañera celebrations, these queer artists are hired to be centerpieces of entertainment bringing elements of drag culture, comedy, dance and beloved songs to intergenerational family gatherings.
