“As outdoor structures give way to failure, we congregate in secret, fantastic spaces rich with possibility. Making our way through a maze of dark, contorting hallways, we turn a corner and tumble into the deep precipice of ever-flowing pleasure and generosity. In the end, there’s still us.”

The bacchanalia of early queer liberation makes a gentle, but deliberate pass at unformed, utopian potentiality, and time becomes a flat circle, inviting the living, dead, and not-yet-born into a cozy sauna that can fit several.
