This is the Winter 2017 course discussion blog for and by UCLA students enrolled in LGBTQ Studies 183: Queer Arts in LA.
This course includes a creative component. When this course was first offered during the Fall 2012 quarter, the students researched queer artists who have a significant connection to Los Angeles. Then created a collaborative website.
Alex Donis is an LA-based artist whose work depicts religion, race, sexuality, and politics. I chose Alex because his work goes outside of cultural and societal norms in depicting different aspects of life.
