Arrive early to the back-to-school ed. of PUSSY FAGGOT! as the Bureau of General Services – Queer Division hosts a reading celebrating poet and photographer Bobby Miller who will be performing live for the first time in New York in 7 years! As a photographer Miller documented Jackie 60 and Wigstock, and he was a pillar of the queer spoken word movement of the 1990′s. Miller currently resides in Provincetown, MA where he has been dubbed the “Poet Laureate” at Showgirls, Ryan Landry’s popular Monday night variety show. The reading also features Justin Sayre, Ariel Speedwagon and Chavisa Woods.
Filmmaker, video artist and photographer Leo Herrera (Homochic) has released a 5-minute video just in time for Pride. The film chronicles milestones and icons of the modern gay man. The story is told through the trance of The Fortune Teller (played by Stanley Frank) and created using archival and modern footage. The film is a documentary and time capsule, paying homage to psychedelic films of the 1960′s and the modern art of the YouTube Montage film. From Mapplethorpe to Lohanthony, Uganda to Burning Man, Vogue to Sissy Bounce, AIDS to The Berlin Patient, meticulously edited clips create a kaleidoscopic five-minute journey through more than 50 years of gay history. See the “The Fortune Teller” decoded for a visual legend to the clips.
“The Fortune Teller” is comprised of over 50 years of imagery and footage. The 5-minute clip took six months to film and assemble, and is made up of 100 carefully selected clips. The style is a take on Lana Del Rey’s “Video Games” video, or The Scissor Sister’s “Let’s Have a KiKi”. It also pays homage to some of our modern day gay “preachers,” such as Chris Crocker or Lohanthony, or Kid Fury, who, as we always have, developed ways to use technology to reach one another.
