Quorum Forum Kicks Off With Museum/Loft Party

The Quorum Forum is a 10-day series of free arts-related events happening in Brooklyn and Queens, from January 14-23.  I heard about this from attending their kick-off event last Friday, The Pop of Museum of Queer History, which took place in a Bushwick loft packed with artwork, movies and performance.  This event was co-curated by queer artists Hugh Ryan and Buzz Slutzsky and was partially created in response to the removal of David Wojnarowicz's work from the National Portrait Gallery, which I've covered here on the blog.  It was packed with the hip/arty gays and turned out to be so much fun that even the police showed up!

Anyway, I wrote about my night at the museum (ha) for NEXT magazine's "The Nexus" blog and took some pictures too, including the shot above of the Stonewall Riot made out a gingerbread.  This is the sort of homemade creativity that the other Forum events will be encouraging this week: there'll be  some bookmaking, tarot card reading and, the final event, a "Hot Pink Mass" on Sunday.  Amen, Mary!  :) You can find all the details on their website.
