     No one before Bernini had managed to make marble so carnal. In his nimble hands it would flatter and stream, quiver and sweat. His figures weep and shout, their torses twist and run, and arch themselves in spasms of intense sensation. He could, like an alchemist, change one material into another - marble into trees, leaves, hair, and, of course, flesh.

Diana Reyes - A Quien Le Pregunto - Vídeo Oficial (Dedicado a Jenni Rivera) 2013 - YouTube →

I saw this video the other day in a mall in Mexico. Before this video, I watched a couple of Banda videos by male signers, which are super sexist, then I thought how sad it was that Mexican media is so behind in portraying equality between the sexes. Then I saw this video (not the same topic but hang in there), and it gave me hope for more positive messages fighting ignorance in Mexican culture. The video tells two stories, one being of a gay couple who get attacked and one of them passes away. It’s a sad video that presents (hopefully) to the regional Mexican music listeners that gay love is real. Just wondering how other people are perceiving it. Anyway, you go Diana Reyes!
