This year the pride festival has the honor to have the presence of Daniel Arzola, activist, visual artist and graphic designer creator of the popular designs of the artwork “I’m Not a Joke”, which will make the Vallarta Pride 2017 official t-shirts shine with its colorful artwork. The t-shirts will be on sale during the festival and will be part of the fundraising in favor of the PrEP in Puerto Vallarta 2018 cause by the Community Center SETAC, which is currently working to bring the PrEP pill to our city as part of an international campaign to prevent and reduce cases of HIV.
Daniel Arzola, Venezuelan, is a visual artist and human rights defender who has popularized the term “Activism” as the creator of “I’m Not a Joke”, a series of fifty posters that became the first Venezuelan viral campaign to reach five continents. Arzola’s work has been reviewed in media such as Globovision, Venevisión, El Nacional (Venezuela), Page/12 (Argentina), El Mercurio (Chile), and Al Jazeera. In addition to the American LGBT magazines Out Magazine and The Advocate.
