DESCRIPTION

As we enter the high season of Summer, with its PRIDE commemorations, we in the RFD Collective wanted to celebrate the many amazing artists in our community.  We are proud to publish a select group of qweer talent with a Magazine Launch/Art Show in collaboration with the Leslie-Lohman Museum.  RFD is the oldest reader-contributed gay quarterly in the USA and Leslie-Lohman is the oldest Gay Art Museum in the world; together we are joining forces to celebrate the Summer issue "Representing Fey Dexterity."

While showing an array of beautiful works from qweer artists in the USA and beyond, we asked the contributors to comment on how being qweer influenced their art production and how being an artist influenced their notions of gayness.  This led to a beautiful interplay of images and words in this Summer issue.  The magazine launch/art show will feature artists works in this issue, a few local NYC artists, issues for sale as well as subscription specials.  The opening will be hosted by the ever-FAB NYC (did)Order of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.  We hope to see you there!

Let's celebrate Summer & our rich artistic heritage!
