When I said I would be focusing this month on Latin@ in the media I meant it. I feel like it was fate that brought me and the following video together.
While the following short film wasn’t made by a Latino, (it was made by filmmaker and artist Graham Kolbeins), it raises many issues in terms of queer culture in general, leather culture, Latino queer culture, and clowns.
Payasos L.A. is about a group of gay/bi Latino men in Los Angeles called Payasos L.A. who do charity work and more dressed as clowns, and damn sexy clowns at that if I may say so.
Check it out and I would love to hear your thoughts.
