In this interview with Carolina Miranda, Chicana photographer Laura Aguilar (1959–2018) discusses self-portraiture in addition to a wide range of other topics, including growing up in San Gabriel, California; Latina/o and LGBT communities in L.A.; and her photographic series and individual works.
Since its founding in 1969, the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center

on the U.S. Chicano-Latino population. Our research mission is supported by
five distinct components: a library with special collections archive, an academic press, collaborative research projects, public and academic programs, and community-based partnerships.
