I'm proud to announce that I have a series of articles coming out at Queer Forty, part of the Gray Jones Media Group. Each article examines a specific relationship between queerness and horror films. So far, two articles have come out: the first on the legacy of Leopold and Loeb in the horror film tradition; the second on John Wayne Gacy and the origin of the killer clown. More articles and interviews will follow through October. All my Queer Forty articles are aggregated here. Screenshots below.
Event: Kudzu Crossroads
A Panel on Queer Southern Identity and Art
On October 28th, Kintsugi Books will host its first event! BGSQD has been kind enough to act as our digital venue. See the full story here. Tickets are free and can be reserved here. Each author is a contributor to the Kintsugi Books anthology, We Make Our Own Light.
Do You Like Scary Stories?
For the first time, I will be participating in 13 Stories Til Halloween! I don't want to say too much. Elysabeth and Jordan made me take a blood oath. I don't know when my story will appear, so we all better check each day to see what ghoulies might be waiting. Starts October 19th!
Digital Video Installation for Queerport:
WATERSHED with Chrissy Taylor
Queerport, a queer southern arts organization in Louisiana, commissioned me to make a video piece for their annual shin-dig. I can't share the video yet, as I want you to attend the opening festivities (and the other FOUR WHOLE DAYS of fun they have planned). Below is the itinerary, some screenshots previews of the film, and the blurb.
Inspired by ongoing discussions about metronormativity, Aldo Leopold's reading of the Wisconsin Round River folktale, and his own connection to "the river" in his native Georgia and now in New York City. Bevins raises the question, "Is it possible to leave home in circular river?"
