First Friday : Queer Carnival

Celia Cruz

In conjunction with Latino Heritage Month, Queer Awareness Month, and Everyone Allied Against Homophobia, the Columbia Queer Alliance presents “Queer Carnival” on the 7th of October 2011.

It is inspired by the late and great Celia Cruz’s song “La Vida Es Un Carnival” Carnival within the Comunidad Latina is a period of celebration usually in February. Carnival is seen as a time to say farewell to the pasts sins and prepare one’s self for the act of repentance throughout the Lent season. During the celebration, a parade occurs where an array of floats comes down the main streets, each depicting different aspects of the Comunidad Latina.

With DJ Tiffany Lee!
