For Independence Day, a fourth-generation American wears his nation’s flag out-and-proudly
Born in the U.S. Gay
Who: Martin Garcia
Spotted: At the Great American Hero sub shop on Lemmon Avenue
Occupation: Service industry.
How he shows his patriotism: This fourth-generation Mexican-American Capricorn plans to attend Independence Day with his family and mini Schnauzer, Dolce Presley (Martin is obsessed with both Elvis and Marilyn). Later in the evening, he’ll probably drag his mother and a couple of his cousins out for a night of clubbing (Tin Room is a favorite).
