Mural Director/ Muralist: Yasmin Hernandez

This mural was created by the young men of the Boogie Down Bronx program of Bronx AIDS Services (www.basnyc.org), a program serving young men of color who have sex with men (YMSM) who are at high risk for HIV infection. The design is set against the backdrop of a stonewall, representing the Stonewall Riots of 1969. The mural depicts symbolic representations of breaking barriers, negativity, violence, ignorance, gay bashing, repression, freedom, a higher power, identity, and community.
