As Club SCUM enters its third year, the Armory celebrates this milestone with an exhibition that features ephemera, flyers, and photographs taken at the club.

About

Founded by Rudy “Bleu” Garcia and Ray Sanchez, Club SCUM is a boundary-pushing, community-building, monthly queer punk POC party at Chico, a venue located on the border of East Los Angeles and Montebello. With its focus on diverse drag performers, and identities that don’t fit into stereotypes, Club SCUM is a platform that welcomes everyone and provides queer Latinx youth a space to gather, create, dance, sweat, feel safe, and transcend the routines of everyday life. 

As Club SCUM enters its third year, an exhibition at the Armory celebrates this milestone with an exhibition in its Mezzanine Gallery of ephemera and photographs taken at the club by its patrons.  The exhibition honors the history of LGBTQ activism, including actions as early as 1959, when police harrassment in downtown Los Angeles at the Cooper Do-nuts prompted an uprising.
