The T’s Have It!

Leon Mostovoy and FTM portraits


As a kick-off to this weekend’s citywide LGBT Pride celebrations, and in particular to next week’s TransPride festivities, the Advocate & Gochis Galleries are presenting “Brought To You By The Letter T“, a group exhibit of photographs and drawings created by Los Angeles transgender artists and trans-allies.  Leon Mostovoy (pictured above), Andrew Overtoom, Kathryn Wilkins and Isabella McGrath are all exhibiting work.

A special portion of this exhibit are artworks created by eight transgender clients from the LBGT Center’s Youth Center presented in photographs by Mostovoy.  These trans youth clients were tasked with creating portraits of their interior selves, instead of exterior representations. Mostovoy’s photographs of these artworks and his own portraits of FTM community members are available for purchase.

Brought to You By the Letter T runs June 5-12 at the Advocate and Gochis Galleries at The Village at Ed Gould Plaza, 1125 No. McCadden Place, Hollywood.

About Judy Ornelas Sisneros

I am a native Californian, born and raised in Bakersfield and eventually escaping to San Jose then San Francisco where I spent every free moment in punk and post-punk culture spaces before heading to LA permanently in 1989. I have also spent major time as an AIDS and queer street activist, which today along with my passion for punk/alternative music still informs my personal and social life. I love photography, film and playing punk/post-punk stuff on the bass. My LA Beat contributions are usually photos that give a glimpse into the vibrant art and music scene that makes Los Angeles such an amazing city to live in today.
