Gabriel Garcia Román's "Queer Icons" are marching in New York City's Pride Parade today. Román is a Mexican-American multimedia artist based in NYC, and this year the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Art commissioned him to re-produce his powerful Icons portraits of LGBT people of color as a processional art installation to be carried by marchers during today's parade in Manhattan. We're in Washington, DC today (see pics below), but whishing we were in NYC too. That's why "Queer Icons" creator Gabriel Garcia Román is our artist of the week.
