Check out “reclaim:pride” at the LA Pride Festival
June 14, 2013
Check out photographs of reclaim:pride at the Los Angeles Christopher Street West Pride Festival on June 8 & 9, 2013, as part of Momentum. reclaim:pride was a collaboration between ONE Archives and RECAPS Magazine that sought to call attention to the radical beginnings of the pride parade as a defiant claiming of public space while connecting the archive to contemporary queer issues ignored or omitted from mainstream gay and lesbian politics. The installation also included a Fag Face scanning station by artist Zach Blas as part of his ongoing series Facial Weaponization Suite. A special issue of RECAPS is due out in early July with documentation of the project plus additional resources.
