Hugo Perez and I talk about being an artist and using your talents to help your community. Hugo has been a big part of helping the LGBTQ community in Houston. We go in-depth about his personal artwork and his hand in the Harris County Public Health's campaign "Testing 123", a campaign promoting HIV prevention. Hugo helps remind us you can always find a way to help a cause you are passionate about. 

His upcoming show "Tread Loudly" is from June 28-30th 

1635 Richmond Avenue, Houston TX 77006
