Dia de los Muertos Is a Time to Remember Victims of Homophobia and Transphobia at Mi Centro
Inside a meeting room at Boyle Heights LGBTQ center Mi Centro is a stunning altar made by L.A.-based artist Erick Villegas Nunes. Crosses are cut into the top of a black box that resembles a church. It opens to illustrations of skulls and melted candles. Light pours through an orange, Aztec-style wheel on its roof and red, windowlike inserts on its front and back. There’s a deck of tarot cards inside and a ouija board at the base of the altar. On one side are the names of the victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting.
