'Portrait of Jason': A raconteur gets his moment

'Portrait of Jason': A raconteur gets his moment | Sex History | Scoop.it

A newly restored print of the 1967 documentary comes to Chicago for a screening Wednesday at the Portage Theater (co-presented by the Northwest Chicago Film Society, Reeling and Black Cinema House).

 

Filmmaker Shirley Clarke (who shot the footage over 12 consecutive hours in the living room of her penthouse apartment in New York's Chelsea Hotel) has only one subject: Holliday himself, an otherwise anonymous raconteur who cannily subverts his outsider status — that of black gay man in the '60s who made his living as a houseboy (his term) — with a mirthful ability to spin a tale.

Julie d’Aubigny, Digital Art History Project

Julie d’Aubigny, Digital Art History Project | Sex History | Scoop.it

An assignment for Advanced Digital! We were supposed to make a gif portrait of a historical figure. I chose Julie d’Aubigny, 17th century swordsmaster and opera singer, responsible for the deaths of at least ten men in duels, and openly bisexual. After her lover was placed into a convent by the girl’s parents, d’Aubigny took the vows to enter the convent as a novice, then rescued her lover and set the convent on fire to cover their escape. Dang.

LGBT politics and sexual liberation

LGBT politics and sexual liberation | Sex History | Scoop.it

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people have won an acceptance in the UK that would have been hard to imagine when sex between men was decriminalised 40 years ago; a similar situation prevails in many other developed countries. At the same time the oppression of LGBT people continues. This article will look at how this situation developed and comment on some recent debates, in particular those that have accompanied the ‘war on terror’.
