I am exited to be sharing wall space at Rayko Gallery with Mariette Pathy Allen and Jamil Hellu celebrating Gay Pride! Opening night June 25th-July 31st, 2015 

The House Bangy Cunts is an ongoing project that visually explores the underground New York City Kiki Ballroom scene, a community organized by LGBTQ youth of color, which provides an alternative to high-risk behaviors, as well as a support system for a marginalized group that is frequently a target of violence, homelessness, racism, and homophobia. http://raykophotocenter.com/upcoming-show/
