Join the Bridgemen in celebrating the art of Ken Ireland for his show "Re-Mastered," a show comprised of classical works remastered with gay erotic images by the artist.
“Using the manipulation of images now possible with digital imagery, I have transported today’s adult industry into a fabricated historical context. I have taken some well-known work, and some not so well known, and remastered them. This series began when I was learning Photoshop some years ago. I wanted to see what the work of Jean-Léon Gérôme, the nineteenth century French academic painter, and Henri Magrite, the Belgian surrealist, might have looked had they been gay. Soon discovered that Photoshop can change the way we see our sexuality by putting it in the context of the world the masters created. I had a lot of fun doing it.” – Ken Ireland.

Wear a Bridgemen shirt if you have one, dress comfortably and don't be afraid to get a little DIRTY!!
We will also be joined by AIDS/LifeCycle Team ALCaholics, who specifically wanted to partner with Bridgemen for a project!

This month, the Strut Book Club is reading QDA: A Queer Disability Anthology edited by Raymond Luczak and featuring fiction, poetry, nonfiction, and comics by 48 writers from around the world. Join us July 25 at 7:30 PM on the Third Floor of Strut for some wine and great conversations about literature. Read the book before hand and come ready to discuss your thoughts.
QDA: A Queer Disability Anthology proves that intersectionality isn’t just a buzzword. It’s a penetrating and unforgettable look into the hearts and souls of those defiant enough to explore their own vulnerabilities and demonstrate their own strengths.
