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.

Vladimir Ríos, shown at right, in character, was featured in the Tiger Milner blog, where he was profiled for his collaboration with photographer Lester Blum on two photo series: Warrior of Hope and I Still Remember, respectively. Both are narratives taken by Blum featuring Ríos (who also served as artistic director) as the main or lead character. Both photo series have been published as photo books and are hitting the art gallery circuit, with Warrior of Hope opening at the Brad Brafford LGBT Center in Santa Ana, California, and I Still Remember opening at the Staten Island LGBT Community Center in the Tompkinsville section of Staten Island. Both exhibitions will open on Tuesday, December 1, 2015 in commemoration of World AIDS Day. To read the blog, click here (note: content may not be safe for work).
