LOS ANGELES THEATER

Built in 1931, The Los Angeles Theater was the last of the great movie theaters to open up in downtown LA during the heyday of the grand movie palaces that were built on Broadway. The premiere of Chaplin’s City Lights started a three-decade long span of popularity at the theater until attendance dropped and the doors closed in 1994. Now it’s mostly used as a filming location for film and television.

Prints are available in my shop.

Another glorious collaboration that allowed me to wholeheartedly live out both my found-footage AND moving-collage fantasies.

Wins all around if you ask me.

The Grand Budapest Hotel Interior 1968

Sylvia Rivera kicking ass on stage after some radfems & transphobes tried to refuse her the right to speak at the 1973 Christopher Street Liberation Day rally.  Said radfems then had their own march in part protesting trans participation in Pride.  A precursor to today’s Dyke March.  

40 years later in the very same park trans women are still fighting for space within Pride as this year’s Dyke March fiasco demonstrated.  I’m feeling challenged and troubled by the narrative that trans women’s response to transphobia must take the “form of serious, calm, point by point analyses of why radfems are wrong” as Stephen Ira pointed out.

What strikes me about this video is that she isn’t trying to be calm and collected after being attacked.  She’s not internalizing the notion that fighting transphobia has to take on the oppressive notion of “respectability.”

These conversations have left me wondering: has the non profit industrial complex and professionalized activism gentrified our political activity?

So within all of that, I say: nothing but love and power to trans women creating space for ourselves in queer community!

Viva la Sylvia.
