The world’s first LGBTQ mariachi group will perform a free outdoor concert as part of the City’s Summer Sounds series on Sunday, June, 24, 2018 from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. outdoors at Plummer Park, located at 7377 Santa Monica Boulevard. Led by director Carlos Samaniego, Mariachi Arcoiris de Los Angeles also features Natalia Melendez, the first transgender female performer in the history of mariachi. This unique ensemble was created as a haven for mariachi musicians who identify as LGBTQ to perform traditional Mexican regional music in the otherwise “machista” and somewhat discriminating subculture of the mariachi world. Admission is free, but seating is first-come, first-served. RSVP is requested at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/summer-sounds-mariachi-arcoiris-de-los-angeles-tickets-43721273506.
