Every Saturday afternoon, a group of LGBT folks gather inside a small office space on Mission Street for the weekly meeting of the Translatina club. The club was formed as a safe place to discuss the issues facing transgender Latinas. Some of the topics discussed in the first weeks were pretty heavy, so members decided to mix it up by having some performances by group members.
Hazel, a self-described “gay boy who dresses as a girl,” volunteered to imitate songs by the Mexican-American Artist Marisela. Below is a photo of Marisela and a video of Hazel immersing himself in the role.
