9:30 PM – 10:30 PM

For many queer and trans people, sex is the backbone of our identity. The works in this program delve into strange truths about what exactly happens when we seek pleasure. Welcome to Athens starts out as a promotion of Greece as a tourist destination and the birthplace of homosexuality, but ends up as something way more fun. Baby is a mesmerizing performance of an individual’s sensual agency. All Eyez on Me is an intense exploration of queer female sexuality in the form of a music video. Genesis recontextualizes bible quotations to express deeper meanings of sexual pleasure. Which Image? explores the portrayal of female ejaculation in media and asks why said portrayals are so dishonest and elusive. Fisting Club Episode 1, featuring an ensemble cast led by the inimitible Jiz Lee, imagines an underground world of queer women gathering together, not to fight, but to fist! Lemoncholy is an absurdist, animated romp that also offers an honest look at sex in a relationship.
