En nuestra piel Cuir: Cuba y Puerto Rico (exhibition)
June 3 – July 9 2022 ▪︎ presented by CMARTS in Haiti.
This exhibition showcases a selection of photographs from an exhibition hosted by the United Nations Cultural Fund, Centro Nacional Cubano para la Educacion Sexual (CENESEX) and the Embassy of Spain in Cuba, and taken by famed photographer Byron Motley.
The history of the global LGBT+ community has been one of highs and lows. Even today in many countries, including the US, LGBT+ people experience homophobia and/or transphobia, hate crimes, and homicides for being an LGBT+ individual. In recent years in Puerto Rico, hate crimes against LGBT+ individuals have been at an all time high with more than 18 homicides reported. In Cuba and Puerto Rico, many out of the closet LGBT+ are seen as unproductive, unreliable, and even “devilish,” members of society for exhibiting behaviors outside of Latino cultural and religious norms. Currently in Cuba and Puerto Rico, civil code and constitution amendments to exclude LGBT+ people have been at the forefront of conservative and religious groups’ agenda.
