We are excited that the special issue of Women and Performance edited by Craig Willse and Dean Spade is now out (and the cover features a still from CQ with Star and Joy). You can read Criag and Dean’s introduction here. Also, we (Chris Vargas and Eric Stanley) had a conversation with Wu Tsang about Criminal Queers, Homotopia, Wu’s film Wildness, and their relationship to Born in Flames. The piece is called “Queer love economies: Making trans/feminist film in precarious times” you can read it here.
We will be screening Criminal Queers at Outfest in LA on July 13, 2013 as part of the Platinum series. The screening is at at 7:15pm at REDCAT. More info can be found here. Also, there is a fundraising effort to help Patreese (one of the NJ4) transition out of prison and back home. If you can donate please do so, and if not help us spread the word far and wide. Here is the link to the online campaign. If you are in the Bay Area, there is also a benefit for her right around the corner.

Join us for a screening of Homotopia, a 2007 film by Eric A. Stanley and Chris Vargas, (screenings at 7:15 and 8:15) and The Papi Project: Archival Images, a multimedia slide installation & programmed soundtrack, by Oli Rodriguez(screenings at 7:45 and 8:45).
The issue will be released as an online journal in late June to coincide with the Supreme Court Decision on same-sex marriage. The issue is designed to break open that conversation by being intentionally provocative across disciplines and through a wide variety of artistic practices. In addition to the publication, the editors are curating a series of events.
