Check out this playful new addition to the Jerome Caja Repository
Stacked Deck Press just released “The Queer Heroes Coloring Book,” and Jerome Caja is one of the many iconic figures featured (Oscar Wilde, Frida Kahlo, Grace Jones, Marlon Riggs, Keith Harring, Divine, etc.). Artist Justin Hall created a really sweet B&W line drawing inspired by Catherine Opie’s famous 1993 portrait of Jerome.

The Jerome Caja Repository
The repository is key to the historical preservation aspect of The Jerome Project. We are currently working with art historians to manage the repository and make it available for academic research. If you have anything related to Jerome Caja and are interested in finding a permanent home for your Jerome treasures, consider donating them to our repository. If this interests you, please contact us! For several years now we have been gathering, documenting, photographing, and preserving material related to Jerome (paintings, photos, videos, publications, and artifacts). The Queer Heroes Coloring book, by Jon Macy, is the most recent addition to the hundreds and hundreds of publications already in the repository.
