Over a year in the making, Brett Kaufman has just debuted his latest digital collage piece entitled “Harvey Milk”. It is the 13th collage in a series of historical portraits which have been created over the past decade. This most recent edition was inspired by an original photograph taken by San Francisco photographer Dan Nicoletta who was also featured this month in Eat Pray Fuck. The collage was meticulously constructed using over 600 photographic images taken from candle light vigils. The 2010 commemorative portrait of Harvey Milk is now available in limited edition and can be purchased by contacting him directly through his online portfolio.
“Harvey has made more of an impact on me, than any other historical icon has.
He opened my eyes to being proud of who I am, and who I choose to love”.

I first saw a preview of “Skinnyfat” at the fabulous Queericulum event back in March. This KOOKY queer comedy, directed by Andy Bydalek features many familiar faces from the Comfort & Joy crowd, including Frisk, Fig, Digger, Hissy, Ride, Artist, Wingheart and more! And it will be making its world premiere at the esteemed San Francisco LGBT Film Festival on June 20th at The Roxie!
“Skinnyfat” centers around two friends (played by Jayson Jaynes and Evan Johnson) on a desperate quest to regain their six pack abs after the softness of late-20s has set in. With razor sharp humor, writer-director Andy Bydalek creates a hilarious portrait of image-obsessed gay culture and shows what can happen when body-consciousness becomes body-fixation.
5 million stars!!!
I just witnessed David Weissman’s emotionally charged new film “We Were Here” and am recommending that everyone see AND support his new film. The film takes a deep and reflective look back at the arrival of AIDS and focuses on a small number of interviewees, all of whom lived in San Francisco before the epidemic hit. This event will sell out so buy tickets in advance through FRAMELINE.
I went last Thurs night and had a GREAT time…met a cute boy and made out on the dancefloor. – SHOW AT 11:00. David h
Hawkins brings in great entertainment …..A super inclusive space in the down and dirty Lower Mission.
Swedish experimental-pop duo, The Knife, have been around for a while but keep a VERY low profile. They avoid the press and publicity in general and rarely do interviews. I stumbled upon them while vacationing in Bangkok and have not seen or heard one peep about them in the U.S.
The Knife is Olof Dreijer and Karin Dreijer Andersson. They are based in Stockholm, Sweden and have made music together since 1999, released on their own label Rabid Records.
