José Muñoz Award Ceremony Honoring Carmelita Tropicana

Tuesday | June 29th, 2021

CLAGS is excited to announce CARMELITA TROPICANA as our 2021 Honoree for the José Muñoz Award.

Carmelita Tropicana has been performing in New York’s downtown arts scene since the 1980’s, straddling the worlds of performance art and theater with irreverent humor, subversive fantasy, and bilingual puns.

Numerous academic scholars have written about her work including queer theorist José Esteban Muñoz in his seminal book Disidentifications, Queers of Color and the Performance of Politics.

Tropicana was an original member of the WOW theater collective, served on the Board of Directors of PS New York, and presently serves on the New York Foundation for the Arts board. She’s a member of Actors Equity Association and the Dramatist Guild.

The Award Ceremony and discussion will be via Zoom and livestreamed on our FB Page.
