WAYS IN BEING GAY

RUTHIE AND CONNIE: EVERY ROOM IN THE HOUSE (Deborah Dickson, USA, 2002, 56 min. video) preceded by HRDWD FLRS., NO FEE, NO PETS (Meredith Holtch, USA, 2000, 20 min., video) This film tells the story of Ruthie and Connie, two Jewish grandmothers who are lesbians. They left their families and children to be with each other which was a difficult decision; but they've managed to ride the rough spots with humor, passion, and wisdom, redefining their own version of family values.

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings


Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
