I Love Your Work Looks at the Lives of Lesbian Porn Stars
This week, award-winning multimedia artist Jonathan Harris releases I Love Your Work, an interactive documentary about the private lives of nine women who make lesbian porn.
Feminist porn pioneer Jincey Lumpkin, the founder of Juicy Pink Box — a NYC-based production studio that produces high quality, stylish and immensely sensual films by-ladies-for-ladies who love ladies — collaborated with Harris on the project.
Lumpkin is also one of the film’s subjects, acting as a bookend, adding commentary at the start and end of the documentary. “When you watch I Love Your Work, you realize it’s less a project about porn and more a project about women and how they live today,” Lumpkin says. “It's an emotional exploration — an instant classic.”
The Little Dog Laughed Is a Great Night of Comedy
Reviewed by Charles Peer
The LGBT Closet Door Theatre Company has launched into its first season with what is sure to be a crowd pleaser, Douglas Carter Beane’s 2007 Tony-nominated play The Little Dog Laughed, and since it avoids the pitfalls that many other productions of this play have fallen into, you should put it on your must see list.
The Little Dog Laughed is a comedy, but with a serious side also, and that serious side is what gets the play into trouble. Fortunately, for this production, director Noemi Rios has directed her talented cast to bring out the laughs and not delve too deeply into the pathos of Beane’s script, which I found to be implausible.
Homes and Gardens is Out Now!
There are few things more satisfying than spending time in that special place you call “home,” whether that be while entertaining with some friends, watching a scary movie late at night or trying to choose a new paint color for the hallway. This is usually the reason our Homes and Gardens Special Issue is always one of our most popular issues of the year.
Our cover model this year is a local businessman, Stephen Crouse, owner of SMC Landscape Design. He agreed to let us take photos of him in his own backyard oasis that he shares with his partner Greg Smith and two wonderful dogs, Joey and Taylor.
