How Brief Eternity, an exploration of enduring hatreds that can prosper in a flawed society and a meditation on the survival of hatred drawn from genocide of gay men in middle east. The work's conception and creation was inspired by the article "The Hunted" by Matt McAllester in New York Magazine about the genocide of gay men in Iraq as well as the Human Rights Watch report "They Want Us Exterminated: Murder, Torture, Sexual Orientation and Gender in Iraq."
The Matthew Shepard Dance Two other-worldly faggots; one famous, the other a hilarious no-body, will appear for your pleasure to put on a dance show from the beyond. Even though they are not bitter over their own unexpected deaths they definitely have their sarcastic and poignant moments. Champagne will be served.
