HOLA Member Bochinche

Bochinche refers to “gossip”. In this sense, we use it to mention HOLA members or Friends of HOLA who are getting acting, performance or similarly artistic gigs and/or recognition in the media. The names of HOLA members and Friends of HOLA are listed below in boldface. To see what other HOLA members are doing currently, click here.

Luis Salgado and Javier E. Gómez, shown above, from left to right, were featured in the monthly New York newspaper Queens Latino, as a result of their participation in a panel discussion about Latinos on Broadway. The panel, presented by R.Evolución Latina, was part of BroadwayCon 2017, which took place in January at 
the Jacob Javits Convention Center (located in Manhattan's West Side) and moderated by Salgado. Besides Gómez, the other panelists were Academy Award winner (and former HOLA awardee) Alexander Dinelaris; Doreen Montalvo; and Andy Señor, Jr. To read the article, which is in Spanish, click here.
