Club 57: Film, Performance, and Art in the East Village, 1978-1983

New York’s East Village of the 1970s and 1980s continues to thrive in the public’s imagination around the world. Located in the basement of a Polish Church at 57 St. Marks Place, Club 57 (1978–1983) began as a no-budget venue for music and film exhibitions, and quickly took pride of place in a constellation of countercultural venues in downtown New York fueled by low rents, the Reagan presidency, and the desire to experiment with new modes of art, performance, fashion, music, and exhibition.

Reijer's World: We Got Undressed and Crawled Into Bed

In awe, I was standing in front of a beautiful country house and looked again at the paper on which I had written down the address.

The fight for a seat on the city council will be with boxing gloves on.

Cruising, how did that go in Amsterdam, that big city?

Tom of Finland’s Life, Love, and Work

His drawings of leather-clad construction workers, soldiers and motorized police officers, all of whom are terribly muscled and well-endowed, have become blueprints of the gay community, as well as internationally recognized symbols of gay pride.
