As a multicultural actress working in Hollywood, which culture do you most strongly resonate with — the Mexican, Lebanese, or American culture? All of the cultures are a part of me, and I couldn’t choose just one, but I must say it is all part of what being an American is all about. This country is a melting pot of so many cultures and that is one of the great things about being an American.

L.A. Hyder | Lebanese American

Self-Portrait at 40, 1987

Ivy & Acey, 1996 

Photographer and LVA (Lesbians in the Visual Arts) founding director L.A. Hyder (b. 1947) uses her self-awareness as an American of Lebanese ancestry to encourage diverse participation.

“I feel all my work is informed by who I am as a lesbian. That no matter what it is, it’s lesbian art…I photograph a lot of doorways and a lot of stairways. I like the feel of possibility and looking through things. I feel it’s not always the content that makes it lesbian. Texture and form to me is very lesbian. My installations have much more direct lesbian content than my photographs, and they have more of a political bent. Installations involve transforming a concept and often mine are about being lesbian or being of Arabic heritage.” - L.A. Hyder statement

Honestly I never really know how to describe Mika’s ethnicity/nationality. The man was born to a Lebanese mother and and American father (who was actually born in Israel) who lived in France for most of his childhood and then moved and currently lives in England??? Like I’m assuming his nationality is British (like he has a British passport) but at the same time he has a strong connection to his Lebanese heritage but he also has a lot of French influence. And didn’t Le Divan keep calling him French-American and?????
