In 1985, residents of Gayside, Newfoundland, a small town in the Canadian Maritimes voted to re-name their hometown, Baytona after enduring increased harassment. Was this an effort to distance the small town from any references to gay culture, especially in light of a new, terrifying AIDS epidemic? Inspired by this tale, and mindful of the climate of social prejudice in heat of the 1980s AIDS crisis, The Third Leg locates another Gayside.

The work of The Third Leg instigates dialog with local queer communities and illuminates complex issues such as societal and internalized homophobia with disarming humor and wit.
