Queer history and art often foreground rebellion, transgression, and sedition. The resistors among us are called to action by the indignities inflicted upon our communities. My Fuzzy Valentine recontextualizes a range of objects into monster-sculptures that reimagine the sexuality of women and femmes. Sex Tapes, Lessons From a 7-foot Tall Penis documents the work of a grassroots sex educator and the surreal costumes and characters he employs to help him in his work. In Rebellion for Love, activist Maria Castro recalls her own awakening to action. The Quiet Rebel tells the story of a performance artist who navigates intense misgoynist and homophobic online harassment as backlash against her own difficult work.
