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.

Larissa Santiago, shown at right in a Chic Boutique dress, walked in the Imagen Runway Trends fashion show (sponsored by Imagen Nuestra Revista). The runway show took place in December at the Caribe Hilton, located in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Due to popular demand, Vladimir Ríos and Lester Blum's photo series I Still Remember is extending its current exhibition at the Staten Island LGBT Community Center (located in the Tompkinsville section of Staten Island) until Saturday, January 23, 2016. The photo series is a narrative taken by photographer Blum featuring Ríos (who also served as artistic director) as one of the two lead characters. The photo series, which deals with the HIV/AIDS pandemic in late-1980s/early-1990s New York, has been published as photo books and is hitting the art gallery circuit. The exhibition opened on Tuesday, December 1, 2015 in commemoration of World AIDS Day.
