As managers of Karolina’s Antiques, brothers Anthony and Uriel Diaz push the family business beyond an eclectic retail environment to act as both an “alternative safe space” and a “go-to zone” for the LGBT community. Rising to the occasion, Karolina’s playfully titled “MexiQueens” marries drag-inspired artwork and fashion design in a collaborative showcase for local artists Anthony “The Lemon” Diaz and Caterina Gutierrez. Whether working on paper or using his own face as a canvas, Diaz celebrates fierce “glamazons” and other “fantastical characters that only further highlight the fluid nature of gender.” Self-described as a “chola trapped in a drag queen’s body,” Gutierrez employs fashion as a medium to comment on “the duality of the Nuevo Latino identity,” with her new collection “Que Más Quieres?” comprising 12 looks to be worn by models of all shapes and sizes. $10-$15 (includes one drink, VIP tickets include swag bags), 6-9pm Sat, Karolina’s Antiques, 1709 Blanco Road, (210) 731-9787, facebook.com. — BR
