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 left, in collaboration with photographer Lester Blum, have completed their latest documentary photography project. Titled Invisible, it shines a light on everyone who feels “invisible” in today’s society, whether it be caused by age, handicap or disability, mental illness, disease, weight issues, or lifestyle. The project will be photographed along as being  a documentary along with testimonies that the individual would like to share with the viewers. The project will have its first exhibition at the Pride Center of Staten Island/Staten Island LGBT Community Center, located in the Tompkinsville area of Staten Island, with an opening reception scheduled for Saturday, August 13, 2016.
