Launch Party for Pinups NO17

After a year-long hiatus, Pinups is back with a new issue that disrupts the book’s inherent narrative. As always, the magazine can be unbound and re-assembled to form a large poster from pages of abstract halftone but as a book, this issue is more complex than its predecessors. In contrast to the halftone pages, which are only fragments of the poster, other pages contain parts of numerous images scattered randomly across the pagination. As single pages share bits and pieces of multiple images, the connections can only be imagined until the poster is assembled and the full images revealed on the poster’s flipside. Pinups No17 features performance artist Jake Dibeler clad with performance props.

Hell in a Handbag

A night of queer madcap stories that fly in the face of bossy bureaucracies (you know the kind) and mandated prescriptions. The lunatic fringe strikes back.

Legendary drag icon and parlor whore, Flawless Sabrina aka Jack Doroshow exposes herself under a blanket of freedom of expression. Visual artist Curtis Carman aka Curtsy recites some queer whimsical poem-ettes. Curtis and Jack’s special guest, Leigh Novog, will read two quirky gay anecdotes that take place in a hyper vigilant New York. Come for a queer night at the bookstore and support a place of freedom with love.
