Just watched The Danish Girl the other night… loved the costume design/ art direction… the movie, not so much. Beautiful to look at but the story didn’t draw me in… and the wigs got worse as it went on. But it made me want to look at the art of Gerda Wegener. Goddess, she was soooooo good! Take a look…

FASHIONABLY MALE: Erik Lazarini a whispered mind and photographer in NYC who showing off an artsy photography entitled “Lines and Shadows” a beautiful geometry set with natural lighting and featuring Mitch all eyes on shapes, lines and the male form . Erik born and raised in Mexico City, he’s cuttingly based in New York City, running the project, based in the deconstruction of the human figure into basic elements based on the geometry, using the lines provided naturally by the body.

ECOSEXUAL is a poetic monologue set in the Portuguese Mediterranean coast in Algarve about loving and making love with nature. It presents the male body as erotic object and as thinking, feeling subject. Through the senses of taste, touch, smell and sight, the protagonist loses himself in a communion with the natural world.
We come to natural places to escape human thoughts and concerns. But what we discover there is our human nature: not separate from, but a thinking, feeling part of Nature.

SISSYDUDE LOVES: THE FOSSE’esque brilliance of director Aron Kantor & choreographer Danny Dolan’s “FOLSOM STREET 2015” video promo!
A kink and fetish fueled dance explosion in celebration of the 2015 Folsom Street Fair.
Folsom Street Fair 2015 is Sunday, September 27, 11am – 6pm on Folsom Street between 8th and 13th streets in San Francisco, CA.
San Francisco has long pushed culture boundaries, radical self-expression and sexual freedom. Today awash in stories of the changing face of the city and its quickly eroding creative communities, “Folsom Street” joyously celebrates the rich history of diversity that pushes the limits of raw sexuality that make this city the exciting cultural haven that it has always been.
Directed by Aron Kantor and featuring Broadway performer Colin Cunliffe, notorious nightlife promoter Mario Diaz, gender-queer drag queen Grace Towers, and a variety of San Francisco dancers and performers, the film serves as both a metaphor for the Folsom Street Fair and an example of the possibilities of queer community effort and activism.

Bill Harrison enters the strange world of Bijou in a scene from Wakefield Poole's classic 1972 film.
“I don’t know what to tell you. A statement is easy, and here it is: Be yourself. Try to matter. Be a good friend. Love freely, even if you are likely–almost guaranteed–to be hurt, betrayed. Do what you were created to do. You’ll know what this is, because it is what you keep creeping up to, peering at, dreaming of. Do it. If you don’t, you’ll be punching clocks and eating time doing precisely what you shouldn’t, and you’ll become mean and you’ll seek to punish any and all who appear the slightest bit happy, the slightest bit comfortable in their own skin, the slightest bit smart. Cruelty is a drug, as well, and it’s all around us. Don’t imbibe.”- Tennessee Williams

style.com: Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli’s design signature by now is familiar. Their simple, covered-up, almost prim silhouettes act like a canvas for the embroidery and beadwork of the Roman house’s atelier. “We were thinking about freedom, and Diana Vreeland’s famous quote, ‘The eye has to travel,'” Piccioli said via phone from Rome where they’re working on their men’s and couture collections. Their reference points ranged far and near, encompassing vibrant Native American motifs, made in collaboration with the artist Christi Belcourt, a member of Canada’s Métis tribe, and the garden flowers and animals that have been part of their vocabulary at Valentino for years. see the full collection here.
