As part of Mutant Salon’s efforts to create a living archive of queer resistance and community in LA, Mutant Salon and Young Joon Kwak invite seniors in the LGBT community share stories of past struggle and resistance, and the current challenges faced by this community. 49 years after the Stonewall Riots, younger generations can’t imagine what it was like to live at a time when it was illegal to be open about one’s sexual orientation and gender identity. In order to understand our position in the current political and social climate and to imagine the possibilities for what queer resistance could look like in the future, it is important for us to hear and archive the stories of how older generations dealt with stigmas of illness, perversion, and policing of bodies.
In conjunction with the exhibition CAVERNOUS at Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions July 11 — August 26, 2018
Curated by Marvin Astorga + Young Joon Kwak, with Mutant Salon
