FIRST QUEER SOCK PUPPET WORKSHOP AT THE LOS ANGELES LGBT CENTER

March 12, 2018

ONETO XXX Los Angeles LGBT Center Workshop 2018

RECENTLY WE COLLABORATED WITH THE LOS ANGELES LGBT CENTER TO ORGANIZE THE FIRST QUEER SOCK PUPPET WORKSHOP. IT IS AMAZING TO SEE HOW MAKING SOCK PUPPETS, HELPS THE YOUTH AT THE CENTER TO GET THEIR MINDS OFF, OF TROUBLES AND FOCUS ON THEIR CREATIVE SIDE

THEY CAME UP WITH SUCH COOL WAYS TO MAKE THE PUPPETS AND TO WRITE DOWN SOME OF THEIR NAMES AND STORIES. THESE KIDS ARE BOMB AND IT IS SUCH AN HONOR TO WORK WITH THEM. THANKFUL FOR THE CENTER TO GIVE US THAT OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE, AND COLLABORATE ON CREATIVE ART PROJECTS.

ONE OF THE STORIES WAS ABOUT THE SOCK PUPPET, GOING BY THE NAME OF "ANGELICA FOR NOW", WHO WAS BORN IN BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA, IN 1973. AND WHO BECAME A FAST SUPER MODEL IN THE EIRLY EIGHTIES. ANGELICA FOR NOW, STILL REGARDS HERSELF TODAY, AS "THAT BITCH". SHE NOW, LIVES PART-TIME IN MILAN, ITALY WHERE SHE ADOPTED A CHIWAWA NAMED, ALBERTO (ALSO IN THE PICTURE) . HE HELPS HER WITH HER SOCIAL ANXIETY. SHE HAS NO KIDS SO SHE FEELS LONELY. ALBERTO IS HER BEST FRIEND.

THE STORY OF MISHCA IS ALSO AN INTERESTING ONE. THEY WERE FOUND OR ORPHANED BY THE ROMANS, WHO THOUGHT THEM FORTUNE TELLING. THEY LATER STUDIES REIKIAN TO WORK WITH GODS. CURRENT DAYS THEY LIVE IN AN ORDER OR SOCRATIC MYSTICS.

SOME OF THE SOCK PUPPETS WERE MADE IN LESS THAN AN HOUR, SOME OF THEM TOOK A BIT LONGER.  IT WAS ABOUT THE PROCESS, AND THE WORKSHOP REALLY BROUGHT THE KIDS TOGETHER AROUND THE TABLE AND SHARE STORIES, OR SIMPLY NOT THINK. IT WAS VERY INSPIRATIONAL TO SEE THEM, AS THERE WAS SO MUCH CREATIVITY GOING ON AND FROM TIME TO TIME, WE COULD ALL CATCH A SMILE, ABOUT HOW FUNNY A "BUTTON" LOOKED AS AN EYE, OR HOW A PIECE OF FABRIC MADE A HANDBAG FOR THE PUPPET. SIMPLE THINGS MATTER.

THIS WAS THE FIRST OF MANY MORE, AS WE ARE PLANNING TO ORGANIZE MANY MORE CREATIVE WORKSHOPS IN COLLABORATION WITH SHELTERS AND BRING CREATIVITY TO THE TABLE WHERE HOMELESS LGBTQ YOUTH CAN USE US, FOR GOOD..
