Did you know black swans are adept at gay male parenting and koalas are one of the only species known for their lesbian tendencies? ! Beloved queer writers and visual artists, Ali Liebegott and Nicole J. Georges, showcase artwork and performance revealing the gay old times of the queer animal kingdom. Watch whales ride each other’s dorsal fins for pleasure, and moustached tamarins finger their facial hair in this brilliant lecture and visual performance, complete with slides and sound.
Liebegott and Georges will exhibit their visual art at The Garage. Join us for the opening reception before the show! The art will be available for purchase to make your home a queer animal sanctuary.
