Gay Art Invades Mexico City Metro

Mexico City’s quite the artistic hub – even their metro stations are brimming with it! Blogger Daniel Hernandez tells us that various stations have permanent and temporary exhibits for the “working man’s museum” – and some of the shows are getting gay:

These are images from “Familias Mexicanas,” currently on view at metro Centro Medico, a transfer point for Lines 3 and 9. It is a series of photographs by Oscar Sanchez doumenting same-sex couples in the capital, in their domestic spaces.

In the image above are Alfonso and Ruben, who according to the exhibit materials first met when Ruben was 11 and Alfonso was 18. Seven years later they ran into each other on the train, and immediately became a couple. They’re in an “open relationship,” hence the guy in the middle. Also, I noticed they’re both wearing the Star of David.

Jews in Mexico?! You learn something new everyday…

    The quote may be out of context…I’m just responding to the text in this particular article.
    But wearing a magan David and getting a lotta Jew IN you (like B. Spears) doesn’t make you a Jew.

    (Jews are everywhere, btw.)

    Me encanta los hombres de México. Por lo tanto, muchos de ellos son allegre, también. Los cruceros los parques por la noche al igual que lo hacemos aquí en los estados. En El Paso, que puedo obtener Latinos durante todo el día en Tres Equis tienda de libros de forma gratuita. En la Ciudad de Mexico, hay muchos bares allegre en la Zona Rosa, donde los chicos gringos amor y suelen ser gratuitos. Sus cuerpos son hermosos.

    My family is from Mexico City and I have a lifetime of trying to explain the differences in Mexicans throughout the country but nobody knows anything until they’ve seen it themselves. Explore Mexico City it’s not burrito-cerveza-whatever you think it is. That’s just a segment of the population. Art has always been important in Mexico City.
