Efrain John Gonzalez has been photographing LGBT events for over 20 years and has been the official Bi Lines photographer since it started in 2006. He has two books of photography published, Ink & Steel: The Body Modification Photography of Efrain John Gonzalez, Schiffer Books and West Street, a book about the night life on the streets of the meat market. I interviewed Gonzalez last year when Ink & Steel came out and he has presented his photography at Bi Lines twice, as well as in museums, bookstores and galleries.
