The Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural & Educational Center, Inc. (The Clemente) will host Fearless, a series featuring LGBTQ artists presenting works in direct response to the tragedy in Orlando and continuing attacks against the LGBTQ community. Connected by the theme of understanding and unity, these events will be spread throughout our 2017-18 season. Artists will have time and space to fully dedicate themselves to the creation of their own artistic work, while contributing to an intercultural exchange among a supportive community of artists in Manhattan’s culturally and artistically vibrant Lower East Side.

Indio Melendez, “Someday A Father Be”
Someday a Father Be tells the story of a single gay Latino father and his son after they have a physical altercation. The heart-to-heart discussion that ensues is told through various characters, underscoring life lessons about disrespect, dysfunction, racial profiling, police brutality and…resiliency in the face of it all.

Migguel Anggelo, “Welcome To La Misa, Baby”
Like the shards of light reflected off a mirror ball, in Welcome to La Misa, Baby, Migguel Anggelo swirls through a gallery of characters found in the most sacred of places in queer culture: The Gay Disco. Whether looking for love, sex, friends, drugs, freedom of expression, or a way to escape their mother, Welcome to La Misa, Baby delves into the Latino immigrant experience of what it means to be gay in America today with both humor and poignancy in equal measure. Anggelo’s one-man community of revelers sing, dance, go-go, and lip-sync for their lives in a quest for what beats in the queer heart of the Latino-American tribe. Migguel is delighted to be creating this new work with long time collaborators Obie Award-winning Writer and Director, David Drake and Musical Director, Mau Quiros.
