Dirty Gay Soundwalk
Forty years post-Stonewall, and the NYPD is still entrapping gay men for soliciting prostitutes at adult video stores (aka “bookstores”) around the city. Join the artist in a walk around the 14th Street vicinity with focused awareness to the sounds around us. What’s the sound of gay today and where does gay history echo in the present soundscape? On this 90-minute participatory soundwalk, the group will actively listen to the bars and video stores in Chelsea, the leather menagerie on Christopher Street, and the late night crowds at the piers.
