Sex in the City! with The Third Leg

September 25, 2007

The Third Leg branches out with a new collaborative piece made for Sex in the City, a mostly painting show in Brooklyn. "Down the road a ways" was conceptualized by Leidy Churchman, Ginger Brooks Takahashi, and Sam Lopes while vacationing in Maine together on Mount Desert Island. Driftwood was gathered and communities dreamed. And upon return to Brooklyn, three days of painting together created this new piece.

Welcome to Gayside

Eastern Edge Gallery, St Johns, Newfoundland, 2006

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.
