Mr. US Gay and I Frolic at Sex Art Show
Here's Mr. US Gay Eddie Rabon and my esteemed self at "Do Not Be Afraid," a no-holds-barred show of man-sexy art and photos at Thom Simmonds Gallery in Times Square Arts Center, aptly enough.
Genitals were virtually popping off the walls in bold and colorful works that turned guys' junk into history-laden art.
Classics by Andy Warhol, Robert Mapplethorpe, and Greg Gorman are in the exhibit, alongside new works by Cyril Georget, Argilano, and Kaola Oty, which explore fear, repression, and censorship--or sometimes the lack thereof.
The result is more stimulating than anything in a Chelsea gallery -- or bar.
