Moderated by Larry La Fontaine,“Queer Prism” builds on the themes of Abram’s El Ambiente exhibition. The panel investigates Latino and Queer identities, and the stories created around places that bring people together. Looking at Puerto Rico’s queer spaces(el ambiente) and how they have become more visible in society, the panel will explore the transformation of Latino identity in light of growing acceptance of queer identity. Participants include Ron Abram, David Acosta, Gerard Silva, and Nikki Lopez.
The panel is part of Taller’s Diálogo Series, whose goal is to deepen our understanding of broader social issues of struggle, community, economic upheaval, and identity. Funding for Diálogo has been provided by a generous grant from PNC Arts Alive, a multi-year initiative of the PNC Foundation dedicated to supporting visual and performing arts groups with the goal of increasing arts access and engagement in new and innovative ways.
