Wednesday May 25, 2016: Queer California – On Music and Mapping

In QUEER CALIFORNIA, scholar/writer Karen Tongson and writer/performer Raquel Gutierrez explore the ways identities impact built environments and psychogeographies in California. How does sprawl, for example, sound? How are built environments repurposed and transformed by LGBTQ people of color through music, performance, and art? This conversation will musically map some of Southern California’s “peripheral” spaces of queer sociability. 7:30 pm, City Council Chambers, 625 N. San Vicente Boulevard. Free admission.

Jason And Shirley: OUTFEST 2015

Event_Jason-Shirley-OUTFEST

The California LGBT Arts Alliance is a proud community sponsor of:
Jason and Shirley, OUTFEST 2015
Saturday, July 11, 2015
9:30 pm
REDCAT Theatre
631 W 2nd St, Los Angeles, CA 90012

Directed By: Stephen Winter. In his newest experimental feature, Stephen Winter (CHOCOLATE BABIES) fictionalizes the infamous 12-hour film shoot that resulted in Shirley Clarke’s trailblazing work of cinéma vérité, PORTRAIT OF JASON (1967). Jason Holliday (Jack Waters), an outspoken and flamboyant African American hustler, recounts his trials and tribulations in NYC’s 1960s gay counterculture. As the shoot wears on, Shirley (Sarah Schulman) and her crew goad and provoke one of documentary cinema’s most remarkable subjects, and we are granted a glimpse at the intricacies of pride and survival in a far less permissive climate.
