“Another amazing day of intercultural exchange on the CLGS ‪#‎psrimmersion‬ in Cuernavaca. This evening we met with Rev. Alfonso Leija of the Iglesia Apostolico who ministers to and with the LGBT community. Glad to have this tremendous opportunity to engage with our Mexican neighbors and colleagues.” — Justin Tanis

“Today, we spent a lot of time at Cetlalic in class with our professors, celebrating Mario’s birthday, and reflecting on the week. A lot of stuff was really useful and helpful in my grammar class. I’m glad to have some more days to practice. I had the best enchiladas verdes for lunch and a good nap after. We visited a huge market and also a church with MCC roots that is working to create a network of LGBT churches in Mexico. The youth were so lively and the stories we heard from the staff were just remarkable. Here are just a couple photos to show some of the great things we saw. Tomorrow we visit an archeological site and Taxco, a city known for its silver production. I’ll have more photos tomorrow for sure. I feel so grateful and at home here!” — Ally Vertigan

Museo Robert Brady  "Robert Brady bought a former convent right near the cathedral in downtown Cuernavaca. He turned it into a home where he displayed an intense global art collection and threw big parties for the gay male community. He died from "liver cancer" aka AIDS. These are photos from his home. The art and decoration are just marvelous." - Ally Vertigan
