Queer & Misunderstood

This zine dissects the Latinx experience within the context of a conservative household. The zine explores the state of identity dysphoria in teenage-hood that is heavily influenced by religion and telenovelas. Bible verses are highlighted to emphasize the demonization of sexual exploration and acceptance. The shrine around the television depicts how telenovela villains are sympathizers of the social outcast experience. The video is edited to embody the strength that these villains embody and queer youth desires.
