Androgony is a queer latine artist from Los Angeles, California. They received their BFA in Photography with a minor in Writing and Literature at California College of the Arts, in San Francisco. Androgony centers their work around issues of self expression and identity. As a queer person of color, Androgony has wondered if they were ever queer enough. Always asking questions like, do they fit in? What is the best way for them to express themselves? As they look deep into their own identity, they ask themselves these enigmatic questions. They have struggled to feel accepted with their queer identity due to lack of representation they were exposed to. Coming from a very conservative community there is an ideal model latino that was put onto them from birth, as it is embedded for latin men to be showcasing masculine features; speaking, looking, acting, and so on. As a latine they have continued to push the boundaries of both their ideas along with societies when it comes to the understanding of what it means to be queer in a latin home. For Androgony growing up in a multicultural community has been a blessing and a curse. The empowerment they have seen in their community has done to not only elevate each other but showcasing the importance of standing together whether that means helping community members getting groceries to having community gatherings has continued to shape the ways Androgony moves through the world today. Androgony will no longer hide the person that they have always dreamed of being. They continue to tackle themes of individual expression, while at the same time emphasizing the importance of the LGBTQ+ community as a whole. With this, they hope to be an advocate for those who feel like their voices aren’t heard.
