A pack of queers crazed about cinema and its time-based sisters, we are evolving our porous skin to include new contributors and collaborations, different and differing voices that help us to contest the limits of what queer can mean in relation to cinema, to region, to gender, to medium, and also to how it can be talked about.
Dirty Looks is expanding its reach this January with the launch of Dirty Looks Volume 1, a biannual publishing initiative to be distributed in tandem with our monthly bi-coastal events. Dirty Looks Volume 1 is a program, an introduction to the works that Dirty Looks will present over the first six months of 2016. By subscribing to the publication one becomes a member, obtaining free access to all the Dirty Looks events plus the publication sent directly to your home address. Snail mail, stamps and USPS. We can’t help it. We started with celluloid first.
Contributors to the first issue include: Malic Amalya, Gregg Araki, Amelia Bande, Katherine Brewer Ball, Dennis Cooper, Jack Halberstam, Guy Hocquenghem, G. B. Jones, Jonesy, Andrew Kachel, Theodore Kerr, Clara López Menéndez, Karl McCool, Bradford Nordeen, Brontez Purnell, Jill Reiter, Alice Royer, Greta Snider, Charles Theonia, Scott Treleaven and Greg Youmans.
Programs include: Hardcore Home Movies; Grace Jones: A One Man Show; Sesión Continua: a porn theatre in Echo Park; Maldito Sea Tu Nombre Libertad, Guy Hocquenghem + Lionel Soukaz's La Race D'ep!; and Gregg Araki's Totally F***ed Up.
