Describe your undergraduate research or creative project: 
This Spanish poster presentation will detail the research conducted on sexual political history in Argentina. The research features a synopsis of historical background in Argentina, a comparision to geographic neighbor Brazil, an analysis of current trends and possible future outlooks. One of the key facets is the identification of pride parades as a form of activism and performance-based art. The art is powerful because it is a glimpse into complex lives represented in a performance.
