Very excited that I received a $350 grant from Feyboy Arts Grants for a Queerer Tomorrow to digitize VHS and Hi-8 movies of Eggplant Faerie Player shows and other events from Idyll Dandy Arts (IDA). The theme of the grant funding cycle was “Through the Past, A Queerer Tomorrow, Today” and they gave away a total of $1,810. What a fabulous example of queer collective resourcefulness! I’m especially honored to be a co-grantee with Tommy Avicoli Mecca, author of Smash the Church, Smash the State! The Early Years of Gay Liberation.
This round of grants was dedicated to Larry Mitchell, author of The Faggots and Their Friends Between Revolutions.
