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…
