LANCE LOUD Interview with DICK CAVETT


FABULOUS NOBODIES- SISSYDUDE talks to JOHN SIMONE about his AWESOME NYC Party Photos! (via Daily Xtra)

_itTwins-at-Copacabana_1988

_johnSex-and-Friends-at-Hairspray-Premiere-Party_1988

Sissydude: Photographer John Simone has two photo retrospectives happening during Toronto’s World Pride. The shows feature New York club culture icons from 1987- 1990. They include Rupaul, Kenny Kenny, Leigh Bowery, John Sex, Quentin Crisp, James St. James, Divine, The It Twins and of course “Party Monster” Michael Alig. Even Cher, Michael Jackson, Madonna and Sandra Bernhard pop up!

_leighBowery-at-Copacabana-Club-with-KennyKenny-and-charlesAtlas-in-background_1988

Simone left Toronto for New York in 1986 and immediately started working for Club-18 (The Roxy), Details Magazine (including Details’ influential nightlife column by Stephen Saban), Vanity Fair and The Village Voice. Of course the magic really started happening for him when friend Michael Alig appointed Simone chief photographer for his Project X Magazine.

_Lypsinka-at-MK-Club_1989

_michaelMusto-and-johnSimone-at-Tunnel-Club-for-jamesStJames-birthday_1987

I recently went to visit the very excitable and engaging Simone (above, pictured on the right, with Michael Musto) in his studio apartment in Toronto to get a glimpse of his gorgeous photos and talk, talk, talk about his subjects and his very interesting life during that time. Of course the magnificent creatures in the photos are what really gets him going…

SISSYDUDE LOVES: THE TENTH ZINE “the black gay boys are here!”

slide_343389_3580243_free

THE TENTH is a publication of art and culture based on the history, culture and research in ideas and aesthetics of the BLACK, GAY community. Loosely inspired by W.E.B. Du Bois’ influential 1903 essay, “The Talented Tenth” and playing off of Alfred Kinsey’s popular, mythical 10% estimate, THE TENTH is a product of the dialogue at the intersection of this “10th” — the vanguard minds of the BLACK, GAY community. Print Issue out this APRIL 2014. FIRST PRINTING SOLD OUT reserve a copy (coming in July) HERE.

sissydude LOVES: BILL CUNNINGHAM’S ‘FACADES’ via The New York Times

Screen Shot 2014-03-14 at 11.03.14 AM

NYT: In 1968, 20 years after his arrival in New York and before he made his name chronicling fashion and society in pictures for The New York Times, Bill Cunningham began another fashion project, a body of work that became a 1978 book, “Facades,” and is the subject of a delightful yet subtly profound exhibition at the New-York Historical Society through June 15.

Screen Shot 2014-03-14 at 11.03.32 AM

“Bill Cunningham: Facades” is the result of a long-term collaboration between Mr. Cunningham and his friend, fellow photographer and neighbor at Carnegie Hall Studios, Editta Sherman, who died last year at the age of 101. Like Mr. Cunningham, “the Duchess of Carnegie Hall” was a devoted collector of vintage clothes. On weekends, Mr. Cunningham photographed her on the streets of New York wearing ensembles put together from their collections. Each image matches clothing with architecture that exemplifies the period, ranging from the late 18th century to the 1950s. The exhibition features most of the 88 gelatin silver prints from the series, which Mr. Cunningham donated to the New-York Historical Society when the book was completed. READ THE FULL STORY HERE.

HOTARIOUS: FERNANDO is COMING… a few scenes from ‘LEATHER NARCISSUS’ (1967) directed by avery willard

651631

Filmed in and around New York City, the film tells the fascinating story, in modern fantasy, of the Narcissus myth. The only protagonist in the film is Fernando, at the time a well-known personality at the bars and gay restaurants in New York. His ‘outing’ is shot in a straight-forward, yet lyrical way. via
