The makers of New York City’s successful queer monthly screening series Dirty Looks are currently preparing a very exiting and ambitious new festival, that will take place throughout July and seeks to celebrate the historical roots of the city’s vibrant queer scene by rediscovering forgotten queer sites and venues. Dirty Looks: On Location is planned as a month-long series of interventions in New York City spaces: Films and video works selected by a group of curators will be installed in former queer spaces like shuttered bars, bathhouses or cruising spaces, one piece will be presented in a different location every night throughout July.
currently support the festival and its organizers by donating via Kickstarter through June 2, 2012 (official video on top). Donators receive awesome thank-you gifts, such as an exclusive Mike Kuchar poster, a postcard-book with all the venues, shirts designed by Curt McDowell and Luther Price or and beautiful works by a whole bunch of contempory artists such as Adam Shecter, Jonathan VanDyke, Dani Leventhal, A.L. Steiner, Gary Indiana, Gavin Lambert, Michelle Handelman or Liz Magic Laser.
UPDATE (2 June 2012): The project was successfully funded!
