The CSRC is a co-sponsor of "Aqui No Hay Virgenes: Queer Latina Visibility," an art exhibition at the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center. The exhibition presents what curators Jennifer Doyle and Raquel Gutierrez characterize as "atypical images of radical Latinas and anarchic visions of bruisers, brooders and romantics that will knock you out with a kiss. No virgins here. Instead, we have women with attitude and a strong sexual presence - divas, punk rockers, and peleoneras (fighters)."

Artists: Alice Bag, Nao Bustamante with Matt Johnstone, The Butchlalis de Panochtitlan, Diane Gamboa, Alma Lopez, Shizu Saldamando
Curators: Jennifer Doyle & Raquel Gutierrez
Sponsors: Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE), UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center, and UC Riverside English Department.
 
The CSRC Library and Archive was at the event promoting its two new efforts, the Mujeres Initiative and the LGBTIQ Initiative, which are designed to increase archival holdings in each area.
