Artist’s Description:

When the “Whole Earth Catalog” was published in my country we have a “Hole Persons Catalog” because we live under the dictatorial governement of Franco. Few years ago that publisment in Spain was appear la “Ley de Vagos y Maleantes” (“Vagrancy Act Law”) it was stated that if you were homosexual you were criminal.

PERSONS WITHOUTH THEIR LIBERTIES
JUST FOR BE THERESELVES.
PERSONS INSIDE THE JAILS
PERSONS UNDER ELECTROSHOCKS
YOU WAS A SICK, A CRIMINAL
NOW THEY ARE A SURVIVORS,
THEY ARE FREE
THEY ARE A TOOL OF HOPE.
