unapologetic femme

Wednesday, January 9, 4:00pm
Studio X at Gibney 280 Broadway
Co-Commissioned by American Realness and Yale’s Theater Magazine
Presented by Gibney

This lecture articulates the stakes, pleasures and lessons of being unapologetically femme, and even downright faggoty, in a world / gay marketplace of desire where femmes are constantly undervalued, desexualized, seen as entertainment — and worse: blocked. Holding an unapologetically femme space is risky. Through fashion and glitter as protest it highlights a conscious decision to clock out of the systems, norms and algorithms that privilege the fascism of white gay masculinity and desire politics.
