Episode 3: Paco

Carlo Quispe with Joey Terrill

Visual AIDS Artist+ Member and HIV advocate Joey Terrill speaks with Carlo Quispe about comics as a tool for addressing fear and stigma in the gay community. They discuss what has changed—and what hasn’t—since the 1980s, and how comics can offer new forms of representation for queer Latinx communities.

Chicano artist Joey Terrill is a second-generation native Angeleno, who has been painting and making art for over 30 years. Born in 1955, his work combines influences ranging from his love of pop art to Mexican retablos and 20th century painters ranging from Romaine Brooks to Frida Kahlo as well as the energy, politics and creative synergy of Chicano and queer art circles in Los Angeles. He illustrated several issues of Chicos Modernos from 1989-1992, a Spanish-written comic series emphasizing the importance of safe sex. joeyterrillart.com
