ABOUT THE PROJECT

Dreaming of You: The Unauthorized Education of Selena and the Queens of San Antonio is a new performance piece by Richard Montoya, Sean San José and Joan Osato, inspired by the Tejana pop superstar Selena’s relationship and collaboration with a Transgender Seamstress. With the unlikely support of the Tejas Drag Community, Dreaming of You tells the story of a young star’s conscious choice to push against established norms of acceptable styles, sexuality and gender in the final triumphant months of her short and meteoric career/life.
