¡Gaytino! travels through decades of Mexican-American/Chicano history, and the gay experience, from a unique and very personal perspective. Touching, provocative, hilarious and absolutely one-of-a-kind, ¡Gaytino! has been embraced by critics and mainstream audiences alike through nationwide performances, including the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC and at the historic Lensic Theatre in Santa Fe, where his performance was introduced by Governor Bill Richardson.
The autobiographical play with music and visual projections, appeals to all audiences with its universal themes: coming of age, self-identity, self-acceptance, a father/son relationship and a treasured lifelong friendship. Dan Guerrero’s father was Chicano music icon Lalo Guerrero and his lifelong friend was late visual artist Carlos Almaraz. Read more about ¡Gaytino! www.gaytino.com
