Chicos Modernos was a Spanish-written comic series emphasizing the importance of practicing safe sex. Illustrated by Joey Terrill, author of queer Chicano publication Homeboy Beautiful, the comic was published between 1989 and 1992 by The CORE Program funded by the L.A. County Dept. of Health Services. The comic promoted and spread knowledge about safe sex during the A.I.D.S. pandemic, such as who was at risk of infection and how to take safety measures-- all while maintaining culturally-relevant comic elements. This information was extremely useful given the time frame and targeted demographic. Moreover, the comics were published solely in Spanish during the height of the A.I.D.S. pandemic-- a time in which Hispanic communities lost thousands due to the virus. Chicos Modernos became not only a source of entertainment, but an indirect health resource. The address listed belonged to The CORE Program, 1990's.
