Ru, Jim. Virginia Guadalupe. 1990.
A bearded drag queen version of the Virgin of Guadalupe. Titled “Virginia Guadalupe,” the painting was displayed in his show “Transcendent Faith: Gay, Lesbian and Transgendered Saints” in Bisbee Arizona in the 1990s. If the Virgin Mary could appear to an Aztec as an Aztec, then why not show up to a queer as a queer?
