Sad Tyler: and the not fun, lonely, boring, overworked, bullshit, lame night.
"I don’t need the right to marry to validate my love for someone, I can do that myself. I need it so I can feel safe in my own country. To truly feel like I am not a second class citizen who can be denied a right that doesn’t belong to the government. For gay marriage to be illegal gives a connotation that gay couples and gay people are criminals, and we aren’t. The sooner gay marriage is legalized the sooner the stigma around being gay will vanish. The sooner it won’t be legal to be fired in 29 states for being gay. Gay marriage means so much more than a piece of paper that states something I already know, it means a step towards a world without prejudice. A world that I hope someday to be apart of, and I hope you want to be a part of too"
Pig troth is complete, now to sand blast it to look weathered and finish the video that will play with it. (Taken with Instagram at Herron School of Art Sculpture and Ceramics Building)
With the release of the first Polaroid camera in 1948 the documentation of private moments was revolutionized. Horny boys, pornography dilettantes, sneaky voyeurs and slutty exhibitionists, the curious and the depraved, and queers of all types were finally able to capture their private moments without the fear of reprisals from the local film counter busybody.
Since the deluge of digital technologies, documenting those moments has never been easier, but somewhere along the way it has sadly become a lot less interesting, less curious, less original. To help rectify this situation, New York City-based East Village Boys has invited some of their favorite artists to create new work to respond to this uniquely contemporary problem.
