We also spent time in Brooklyn and found this comic book shop:
I was super excited to pick this up.
And....another gem from Bluestockings:
|this is one of his more famous pieces|
I'm stoked for this too, it's sort of Arsenault's gender/plastic surgery journey as performance art. I don't know much about her, she's from Toronto. I gathered her transformation has been about art as well as her own gender issues, using the body as a canvas for commentary like Orlan. (that video is preceded by an ad, which i hate. anyhoo).
This kind of combines my interests in body transmogrification, and performance art via mortification of the flesh, combined with always interesting gender performance issues!
I got two other books at Bluestockings, one is a compilation of a zine about yard sales, another a treatise against equal marriage. I like reading about gay perspectives on equal marriage, and the idea that Proposition 8 is sort of a bait and switch for more meaningful reforms and inequities affecting LGBTT communities.
