Vice: Lucha Libre

Screen Shot 2014-06-22 at 6.36.48 PM

I had been working on a story for Vice that recently went up…

Lucha libre is a freak show, but it’s an inclusive freak show, starring women, old guys, and gay guys—yes, the sport features gay crossdressers known as exóticos.

Of course there is a lengthy and great and typical story about freelancing that goes along with this, which I will have to save for another time. Regardless, it was a fun story to do with my talented and good friend Jessica Flynn, who shot the photos.
