Audrey Gelman, Marilyn Minter, Mike Eckhaus Support Swing Left Fund-raiser

Grassroots organization Swing Left is rallying Democratic voters to head to the polls in time for the midterm elections — with a party.
The national group is holding a fund-raising dinner and soirée on Tuesday in efforts to put blue politicians in the House of Representatives and move the House majority away from the GOP.
The event will take place at Hook Studio in Brooklyn. Hosts of the party include The Wing’s Audrey Gelman, designer Mike Eckhaus of Eckhaus Latta and photographer Steven Klein, among others. Oliver Hicks, founder of production agency North Six Group, will also host. The artist Marilyn Minter will be on hand to sell and sign T-shirts bearing the message “Resist.” DJ collective The Misshapes is slated to supply the tunes during the after party, which runs from 9 to 11 p.m.
During the family-style dinner, guests will engage in a discussion helmed by activist DeRay Mckesson, who is involved in the Black Lives Matter movement and was active during the Ferguson, Mo., and Baltimore protests. He also is a cofounder of Campaign Zero, which aims to end police brutality. You might recognize him by his signature blue Patagonia down vest, spotted at many an industry party.

In A Bold New Book, Earth Is Left Uninhabitable By War

Lidia Yuknavitch’s latest novel, The Book of Joan, pays homage to a figure who’s inspired the author since her Catholic upbringing: a woman and a martyr, Joan of Arc. In an interview with The Rumpus, Yuknavitch explained how the historic idol allowed her to turn her suffering into “something more like girl power,” and her novel makes that personal connection clear.

Honoring the story of 1400s Joan, Yuknavitch’s book follows another Joan on a near-future expedition. As a girl, she learns that she’s intimately connected with Earth, down to her anatomy, which includes a blue light that emits from her forehead, coinciding, it seems, with the planet’s pain. As war happens ― suddenly and everywhere ― child soldiers are enlisted, and Joan’s oneness with the natural world is used as a weapon. She also discovers she has the power to bring the dead back to life, for a short time.

These skills turn her into a symbol of hope, one the tyrannical Jean de Men aims to destroy. The dictator reins over CIEL, a space home inhabited by humans whose skin has lost its pigmentation and whose genitals have become shriveled and useless. In this new society, there are no books, only stories branded onto skin through a process called grafting.

One expert grafter, Christine (after Christine de Pizan, a medieval writer who criticized poet Jean de Meun’s work about courtly love), wears Joan’s story and believes that, although Joan was burned alive, she’s still living and thriving somewhere down on Earth. She hopes to lead a coup against Jean de Men, who’s working to restore human genitalia not for pleasure, but for reproduction.

Meanwhile, Joan roams Earth with Leone ― her closest friend ― exploring deep caves where life thrives in the form of worms and bugs. Yuknavitch’s stellar prose is most alive here, when she’s lovingly describing the natural world ― its beauty and brutality.

As a story, The Book of Joan is something new altogether. The characters moralize. They give speeches, they lay out their philosophical views, and they seldom act in ways that contradict their beliefs. So, the effect is like that of reading a comic book ― or medieval text ― infused with lines of perfect poetry. There are heroes and villains. The heroes act heroically, and the villains, corrupted by power, enact evil deeds without remorse. Jean de Men’s “gross train of flesh [is] splayed out on the floor.” His voice is “reptilian.” “He aims his words with measured venom.”

This is not a conventional approach to contemporary literature or science fiction; both genres aim to create characters who are as morally complex as most humans. (Individuals are large, remember? They contain multitudes.) But, Yuknavitch isn’t a conventional writer, and has, in fact, devoted her career to rethinking conventions.

She runs a writing workshop called Corporeal Writing, where budding authors’ intuitions are valued and where politically engaged work is encouraged. In the description for one of the courses, the program’s site reads, “A cohesive narrative can happen any number of ways.  It can be an accumulation of fragments, it can be kaleidoscopic, it can by lyric, braided, circular, vertical, visual, it can be arranged as a palimpsest.”

Kaleidoscopic, lyric ― these words nicely fit Yuknavitch’s style, which is especially suited to the passages wherein Christine is telling the story of Joan, who, to her, is a symbol of hope.

But, aside from her descriptions of her heroes, her fantasies, and her beliefs, we’re not given access to Christine’s life on CIEL. This book will appeal less to readers interested in worldbuilding and in individuals navigating future social systems ― a la Ursula K. Le Guin, more anthropologist than philosopher. It is, instead, an homage to an idol, an ode to a way of life, and a warning about mistreating the earth and each other. All of that’s wrapped up in a voice that’s uniquely Yuknavitch’s, which is worth reading for alone.  

The bottom line:

More poetic creed than conventional story, The Book of Joan shows off Yuknavitch’s imagination and her gift for crafting sonorous sentences.

Who wrote it:

Lidia Yuknavitch is the author of The Chronology of Water and The Small Backs of Children, which we named one of HuffPost’s Best Books of 2015.

Who will read it:

Anyone interested in fiction that grapples with gender, climate change or near-future scenarios.

What other reviewers think:

The New York Times: “Telling the truth with precision and rage and a visionary’s eye, using both realism and fabulism, is one way to break through the white noise of a consumerist culture that tries to commodify post-apocalyptic fiction, to render it safe.”

LARB: “Perhaps it is only ‘natural’ that in a book that brings together so many different strains of history, literature, theory, and even science, some parts are bound to contradict others.”

NPR: “Yuknavitch is a bold and ecstatic writer, wallowing in sex and filth and decay and violence and nature and love with equal relish.”

Opening lines:

“Burning is an art.”

Notable passage:

“Leone, whose small heart had a defect at birth, who carried a heart that started out in a pig. Xenotransplantation and Leone had become Joan’s favorite words. Xenotransplantation represented a change in the distance between people and animals in a way she loved. Leone represented Leone, just Leone, Leone.”

The Lady Gaga Wedding Dress Sketches That Left The Star ‘Speechless’

Lady Gaga is known for her outrageous fashion choices, but when it comes to her upcoming nuptials, it’s all about what fiancé Taylor Kinney wants.

“It will be totally for Taylor,” Gaga told WWD of her wedding dress. “It’s all about my man. I haven’t really thought about anything specific yet but whatever it is, it will be totally for him.”

Kinney popped the question on Valentine’s Day with a heart-shaped diamond ring. The pair first met on the set of Gaga’s 2011 video for “You & I.”

One thing is for sure — designers are eager to design a dress for what WWD calls the “bride of the decade.” On Wednesday, the publication released 36 sketches submitted by top designers for the fashion icon. And Gaga was totally flattered:

Check out some of the sketches below, and head over to WWD for the rest.

No Child Deserves To Be Left Behind

When one examines the hypocrisy inherent in so many heated discussions about birth control, it quickly becomes apparent that conservatives will do everything possible to proclaim and protect the legal rights of a zygote while ignoring the need of a child to be nourished and protected through the arduous and often frightening journey to adulthood.

2014-08-06-conservatives1.jpg

Although Christian conservatives may delight in singing What Child Is This? at Christmastime, their willingness to protect a living, breathing child is questionable.

  • Some children are sexually abused by members of their family.
  • The international trafficking of young children who are sold into prostitution and child labor situations is appalling.
  • For some of the more fanatic NRA members and open carry enthusiasts, the prevailing sentiment seems to be that their right to keep and bear arms trumps an innocent child’s right to life.
  • Darkwulfe’s diary on Daily Kos entitled The Voyage of the St. Louis (and How it Mirrors the Border Crisis) offers a disturbing history lesson for opponents of immigration reform.
  • A recent cartoon suggests that any and all children from Central America who attempt to cross the southern border of the United States in their desperate effort to find a better life should scream “My name is Fetus” in order to assure their safety.
  • Ian Grey’s poignant article on Salon.com entitled How I Escaped My Pederast offers a heartbreaking story of how confused and vulnerable teens can be ruthlessly exploited by pimps and chickenhawks.
  • In many cases, homeless teens end up on the streets of America after coming out to their not-so-tolerant Christian parents. In other cultures, however, the deadly combination of poverty and illiteracy can undermine a child’s emotional and spiritual development.

Two new films making the festival circuit offer dark, yet refreshingly blunt insights into teens who rise above their situations in order to redefine their lives. Each offers a candid perspective on reality that would easily scare off studio executives hungry for a commercial success.

Seen at the 2014 San Francisco International Film Festival, Abdellah Taïa’s largely autobiographical film, Salvation Army, takes its time gathering momentum. The story follows a 15-year-old boy named Abdellah (Said Mrini) who is first seen living with his five sisters in Casablanca.

Abdellah may look innocent and rarely say much, but he’s keenly observant. Though he has an unrequited crush on his older brother, Slimane (Ammine Ennaji), he understands that Slimane is only interested in women.

2014-08-06-salvation1.jpg

Abdellah (Said Mrini) with his older brother, Slimane
(Ammine Ennaji) in a scene from Salvation Army

On those nights when his parents have sex, Abdellah sometimes tries to prevent his father (Abdelhak Swilah) from beating up his mother (Malika El Hamaoui) following intercourse. At other times he recognizes the subtle signals from a local fruit vendor (Hamid Elouajdi Mouladi) who uses Abdellah for a quick fuck before rewarding him with a watermelon to take home to his family.

Only when Slimane encourages Abdellah to learn how to read in French (so that he can escape from a life of poverty, patriarchy, and cultural oppression) do Abdellah’s horizons begin to broaden. As the filmmaker explains:

Salvation Army is actually a story of a solitude. Fragments from this solitude. The narration is not a classical one. The images seem slow and silent, but they are not. The hero is a gay Moroccan but he is not a cliché victim. Like so many Moroccans, he deals with reality with some perversity. He is totally alone. I had to find the right distance, the right images to say the hard reality of my country, Morocco (and not only for gay people). To show the silence imposed on everyone there. To show a world that I know very well. No one could write the adaptation in my place. I did it alone. I hope that they will get the rhythm, the hidden secrets.”

2014-08-06-salvation2.jpg

Midway through the film, an older Abdellah (Karim Ait M’Hand) is seen with Jean (Frédéric Landenberg), an older European man who is a professor. Although Abdellah has managed to get a scholarship to study in Geneva, he remains poor. When he and Jean hire a man to row them around in a boat while in Morocco, the man compliments Abdellah in Arabic on having found himself a rich boyfriend.

However, in a repressed culture like Morocco’s, their relationship is pretty much a quid pro quo. Jean gets a sexy (if somewhat sullen) young boyfriend while Abdellah snags a visa that allows him to live in Switzerland. After he breaks off his relationship with Jean, Abdellah’s options become increasingly limited. Eventually, the lonely young man finds himself knocking on the door of the local Salvation Army, hungry for food, shelter, love, and a better future.

Taïa’s brooding film, which is extremely short on dialogue, benefits immensely from Agnès Godard’s cinematography while capturing the quite desperation and loneliness of a stranger in a strange land. Here’s the trailer:

* * * * * * * * * *

In the past few years LGBT film festivals have featured numerous entries depicting the challenges faced by straight parents of a gay child or gay couples who have adopted children (or conceived children with the help of a sexual surrogate). Few have shown gay men being confronted by the angry child they created with their best friend in college on that hopelessly drunken night when they were still trying to prove to themselves that they were straight.

2014-08-06-straightson1.jpg

Ignacio Montes is Armando in My Straight Son

Venezuelan filmmaker Miguel Ferrari has done a spectacular job of filling that gap with a provocative new film entitled My Straight Son (which was screened at the 2014 Frameline Film Festival). The film’s original Spanish title translates as Blue and Not So Pink, meaning that life isn’t always as pretty or happy as one might wish.

Set in Caracas, My Straight Son revolves around the closeted Diego (Guillermo García), a handsome, charismatic, and successful photographer who specializes in the fashion and arts scene. For the past few years, Diego has been in a stable relationship with Fabrizio (Sócrates Serrano), a successful OBGYN doctor who wants to marry Diego, move in together, and settle down.

2014-08-06-straightson2.jpg

Diego (Guillermo García) and Fabrizio (Sócrates Serrano) talk
about getting married and settling down in My Straight Son

Because Diego is often so wrapped up in his work that he ignores phone calls from his family, he learns (on extremely short notice) that his ex-girlfriend is putting their son on a plane to spend the summer with him while she participates in a special project in Paris. From the moment Diego picks up Armando (Ignacio Montes) at Simon Bolivar International Airport, it becomes obvious that the handsome teenager has arrived with a big chip on his shoulder.

2014-08-06-straightson3.png

Diego (Guillermo García) is visited by his son,
Armando (Ignacio Montes) in My Straight Son

Armando’s attitude (“I’m not your pal, I’m your son!”) has nothing to do with the fact that Diego is gay but everything to do with his anger that, as a father, Diego has failed to remember his birthdays and shown little interest in his son’s life. If meeting Diego’s overly dramatic friends delivers a stiff dose of culture shock, Armando’s reunion with his father is further tested when Fabrizio becomes the target of a vicious gay bashing and dies in the hospital’s intensive care unit.

Diego asks friends to look after his son while he tries to deal with Fabrizio’s homophobic parents, attempts to track down the thug who murdered his lover, copes with his loud-mouthed and perpetually inappropriate female friend, Perla Marina (Carolina Torres), and seeks help from a popular transsexual cabaret performer named Delirio del Rio (Hilda Abrahamz) while struggling to handle his grief over Fabrizio’s death.

2014-08-06-straightson4.jpg

Armando (Ignacio Montes) confronts his father, Diego
(Guillermo García) in a scene from My Straight Son

Meanwhile, Armando (who is shy with girls) has been chatting online with a young woman and trying to get up the courage to meet her in real time. Armando hasn’t helped matters by sending her a picture of one of the fashion models his father has photographed instead of a picture of himself.

Primarily known to Venezuelan audiences as an actor, Ferrari’s debut as the director of a full-length feature film is most impressive. Not only does My Straight Son look at Diego’s crises from the perspective of a man trying to cope with his biological family, his extended gay family, and his former lover’s homophobic family, it does a triumphant job of depicting the emotional strength of family values that transcend religion or ideology. As Ferrari explains:

“What I value most in an actor is the simplicity of his actions and the ability to empathize with the character, to stand in their shoes and make me believe that he is the character — unadorned and without fanfare. This film is not about a gay issue. It is a film with a great variety of characters, each with their particular sexual preferences. I wanted to talk about them from their human dimension, separating them completely from stereotypes. I wanted to talk about people who never talk; people who are discriminated against by prejudices of all kinds. This is a story about love, friendship, and about family in its broadest sense.”

2014-08-06-straightson5.jpg

Poster art for Azul Y No Tan Rosa (My Straight Son)

My Straight Son is also a story with some hairpin dramatic turns, emotional challenges, and joyous surprises that is beautifully framed by Alexandra Henao’s cinematography and enhanced by Sergio de la Puente’s music. Its cast turns in rock solid performances (including the horrific gay bashing scene that costs Fabrizio his life) which allow viewers to witness a large coterie of complex characters forced to undergo substantial emotional growth. Here’s the trailer:

25 Reasons Kids Should Be Left Alone With Their Dads

Making fun of dads because they are “pretty much just giant children” is soooooooo 2011. Maybe y’all ain’t heard, but dads are getting all sorts of respect lately — not because they’re doing anything different, but because — ugh — who didn’t want to loosen up the grip a little, amirite?

Buzzfeed didn’t get the memo, so they put out a hilarious article titled “24 Reasons Kids Should Never Be Left Alone With Their Dads”. And besides some of the photos being genuinely funny with no real gender-specific blame to lather onto dad, it’s just kind of, well, you know… phoned in.

But here’s the thing: when you beat dads down over and over and make moms distrustful of them (even in jest), all it makes society say is “don’t leave your kids alone with dad — you KNOW what they do!” And then guess who has to deal with the pressure of raising kids, working, and doing their damn thing? Moms. So lay off, kk?

In light of this, I present to you 24 reasons (plus a bonus, you motherlovers) your kids should be left alone with their dads.

1. They’re Not Too Cool for Selfies


Because honestly, if a kid silly face will brighten your kid’s day, you check your pride and do it.

2. They Make the Coolest Lunch Pack-ins


Look for a Q&A with this dude here soon. Incredible work.

3. They’re Not Afraid of Creepy-Crawlies


There’s a couple of good “lizard” euphemisms I’ll pass up here.

4. They Know Their Way Around a Garden


And teaching a love for eating right!

5. The Best Family Portraits EVAR


Like, honestly.

6. They’ll Be At Every Game


Even if they’ve got two broken legs, they’ll make it there.

7. Family Movies in the Man-Cave


Because it’s just a cave if it’s not filled with family.

8. They’ll Wait Hours to Get You Next to the Trophy


You won’t care now, son, but when you’re older, it’ll be cool to have a pic of three generations next to that thing.

9. Discipline Is Sometimes in Character


Though really, everything BatDad does is in character.

10. Medical/Dental/Vision Insurance is a Number One Priority!


But you know what I mean.

11. They’re Into Crafts

And not above making up superheroes.

12. They Will Tell the Hell Out of a Story

Anything to make a bedtime story better.

13. They Beam With Pride


About everything their kids do — big and small.

14. They Make Great Pillows


And they don’t just run to Twitter to complain about it and demand wine.

15. They Aren’t Afraid


When their child arrived, they dove right in.

16. They Will Be Your Training Wheels


Until you can go it alone.

17. Seriously, the BEST Lunch Notes


We Q&A’d with this guy! Read it here!

18. They’re Not Afraid to Hold You Close


And take you everywhere.

19. They Let Their Kids Play With Their Old Toys


Because you can’t take it with you when you’re gone.

20. They Will Ride That Ride


Because it means a lot to you, son.

21. They Have Good Advice


Sometimes so good that it ends up in a book.

22. They Have a Conference About Being a Good Dad


And the support there flows. Pic of dad blogger Lorne Jaffe.

23. They Can Show Mercy


From BusyDadBlog: “She said ‘aw it’s so cute’ and proceeded to pet this fish. Of course we had to let it go.”

24. They Will Catch You


Not just when you fall, but when you jump.

25. They Honor Their Spouses With Pictures Too


Because if they didn’t respect their spouses, why would they be raising a kid with them?!

Your move, Buzzfeed.
