The Cure for Misery? Great Gay Art!

President Trump. Really? Major YUK! What a horrible decision to put that dangerous clown in the White House. Yesterday was for mourning his victory.

But today I got out of the house and went to a couple of historical and beautiful LGBT-themed art exhibits—”Gay Gotham” at Museum of the City of New York and illustrator Antonio Lopez’s retrospective at El Museo del Barrio. It was an invigorating reminder that even during the toughest of times our resilience and creative spirit shines through. It always has, it always will.


Entrance to exhibit. Rather enticing..!

Drag king Trash at the Clit Club by Alice O’Malley.


Gerard Malanga from one of Andy Warhol’s “Screen Test” movies.


Artist Peter McGough, who is included in “Gay Gotham,” happened to be visiting the exhibit.


“Gay Gotham” includes several historical maps of New York. The map of downtown includes a  photo that I took at the Pyramid Club in 1992 (and is from my photo collection “The Drag Explosion.”)


A book published in conjunction with the exhibit includes a page of my photos.

Appreciating fabulous art is therapeutic!
