Museum Hours

Museum Hours

BY DAVID EHRENSTEIN | “Everyone chooses to remember what they want to remember,” Mark Jacobson observes in his New York magazine piece “What Everyone Gets Wrong About ‘70s New York” late last year about one of the “few times in recent New York history [that] have been so longed for, so endlessly discussed.” This longing, so […]

An Outsider Sees All

An Outsider Sees All

BY SCOTT STIFFLER | A prolific visionary held in high regard by peers from the realms of art, psychic phenomena, gay erotica, and Cold War counterprogramming, Ingo Swann (1933-2013) blazed a multiplicity of paths remarkable not simply because they are the achievements of a man ahead of his time, but also because he did not regard […]

Gay Art Goes Bigger

Gay Art Goes Bigger

BY KELSY CHAUVIN | It may seem hard to believe, but it’s been nearly a half-century since Charles Leslie and Fritz Lohman hosted their first art exhibit. Little did they know that the gay art show mounted in their Prince Street loft in 1969 would lay the groundwork for a niche cultural institution that continues to […]

Southern Boys Dreams Come True in Manhattan  

Southern Boys Dreams Come True in Manhattan  

BY DAVID NOH | In my circle, the most hotly anticipated show of the holiday season is Transport Group’s “Once Upon a Mattress,” with a cast that includes Jackie Hoffman, John Epperson (aka Lypsinka), Jack Donahue, Jason SweetTooth Williams, Jay Rogers, David Greenspan, and Hunter Ryan Herdlicka. I traveled down to the historic Henry Street Settlement […]

Sharing Matters, Too  

Sharing Matters, Too  

BY DONNA ACETO | Being a lover of both photography and animals, I fully expected to be moved by stories of unconditional love, warmth, and comfort — the sort that come curled up in a lap and wrapped in their own natural fur coat — by “When Dogs Heal,” an exhibit about canines and their HIV-positive […]

The Power of Us  

The Power of Us  

BY DONNA ACETO | It was July of 2006 when I took my very first photo of a little girl named Jackie with one of her moms, who was then nameless to me. Busy for years doing photography chronicling the AIDS crisis, I was a latecomer to the marriage equality movement, but this was my beginning. […]

Breaking Intersectional

Breaking Intersectional

BY BRIAN McCORMICK | Through contemporary performance and visual art curated from around the world, Queer New York International examines and broadens current notions of queer and the geographies that define it. This year’s fourth annual festival features US and New York premieres by artists from Bulgaria, Croatia, France/ Morocco, South Africa, Switzerland, and the […]

The Essence of Estes  

The Essence of Estes  

BY DAVID NOH | The breathtakingly assured, masterfully crafted, and painstakingly detailed paintings of Richard Estes heralded the concept of photo-realism in the art world and remain among the prime examples of this genre. A major retrospective of his New York-inspired work is at the Museum of Arts and Design through September 20, and the opportunity […]

Male Exposure: Capturing Broadway’s Sexy Side

Male Exposure: Capturing Broadway’s Sexy Side

BY MICHAEL SHIREY | There are no shortage of attractive male models in New York City, and surely more than enough photographers who are very willing to shoot them. Roberto Araujo is one such photographer — but you would be mistaken not to view him a step ahead of much of his competition. Looking at his […]

Geeking Out at Flame Con      

Geeking Out at Flame Con      

BY MICHAEL SHIREY | It seems strange that an event like Flame Con — New York City’s first-ever queer comic convention — did not exist before now. But fear not — the folks at Geeks Out not only responded to the call, they delivered. And the unique Victorian splendor afforded by Brooklyn’s Grand Prospect Hall only […]
