Reflection on Last Lecture
Last week's presentation on artists was interesting and appealing because of the focus of artists of color. My favorite was Jose Guadalupe Posada's satirical poster, Los 41 Maricones. I loved it because it is directly addressing and mocking the stereotypes associated with gay men. The bottom of the poster read "Muy Chulos y Coquetones" , which translates into "Very sexy and flirty" and I know that at the time, due to the political rule of Porfirio Diaz, the thought of publishing such a thing was as dangerous as it was controversial.
