WAYS IN BEING GAY : WAYS IN/BETWEEN GENDER 20th ANNIVERSARY

The Cockettes

This critically acclaimed doc explores the rise and fall of the San Francisco theatrical troupe (1969-72) whose legendary gender-bending performances have been all but neglected in the history of the psychedelic era. Using brilliantly colorful archival footage, David Weissman and Bill Weber's 2002 documentary literally sparkles as "The climate of all-embracing acceptance, blurred sexual lines, joyful transgression, rebellion and freedom comes through with warmth, humor and nostalgia." —David Rooney, Variety

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.
