A celebration of censorship

leslie lohman museum, nyc, lgbtqA celebration of censorship is an exhibit at the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art in New York City that runs through Sunday, May 3rd.

Has anyone seen the exhibit which opened last month?  I’m curious because the description sounds interesting.  The Leslie-Lohman Museum describes the exhibit as follows, “For decades, censors—would-be and actual—have attempted to suppress queer creativity… Taking inspiration from the censorship of Robert Mapplethorpe’s art in the 1980s and 1990s, and the more recent withdrawal of David Wojnarowicz’s A Fire in My Belly from the National Portrait Gallery, we explore the innovative responses to watershed moments in the history of censored LGBTQ art… Here we seek to situate the work within its historical context of censorship and to highlight the resilience of the queer artists who audaciously attempt to address diverse social and political issues in their work.”

If you visit the exhibit, I’d love to hear your thoughts and if you think it is worth checking out.

#BoycottDolceGabbana

Boycott Dolce Gabbana, #BoycottDolceGabbanaI wasn’t going to comment on the current controversy regarding Stefano Gabbana’s recent comments until he decided to open his mouth again in response to a call for a boycott of D&G products initiated by Sir Elton John and quickly picked up by many others in the gay community.

This is so reminiscent of Guido Barilla’s, Chairman of Barilla Group, comments in 2013.  It begs the question can the Italians join the rest of the world in the 21st century? Who would’ve ever guessed that the current Pope would prove to be a better friend than the founders of D&G?  I’m terribly disappointed in Stefano Gabbana and his one time partner, Dominico Dolce.  Their concept of what a healthy family looks like is terribly flawed and while they have a right to their opinion they clearly don’t understand who their buyers are. Insulting one of your most important group of buyers is an odd way to foster brand loyalty. Somehow I don’t see creeps like Senator Rick Santorum and Senator Ted Cruz buying D&G. Maybe Dolce & Gabbana can team up with Chick-fil-A.
