More: Remember Gay Love Story
In this short film (aprox 7') we document the very first rehearsal and very first staging of the performance "Gay Love Story", by Lun Ário and Kay Garnellen, for the "Hurenball" (lit. Ball of the Whores), the party celebrating 30 years of Hydra e.V., an association for the defense of the rights and interests of sex workers in Berlin. "A macho gay guy is sitting in a bar, waiting for his next victim...His lucky number seems to be this cute shy guy coming in... But things might not be what they seem." In this 8' performance, in which a determinist interpretation is purposedly left impossible, themes are suggested like the role and space transgender people have (or not) in mainstream gay communities, date rape, gender clichées within the queer community, consent, danger associated with sex work, discrimination(s), guilt, fear, lust and ultimately, love. The two performers, Lun Ário, Kay Garnellen and filmmakers Ann Antidote are queer sex-positive DIY performer artists based in Berlin.
