Complaints of art show about non-conforming homosexuals that didn't have a more diverse spectrum of transgender, colors and handicap non-conforming homosexuals. https://hyperallergic.com/502730/art-after-stonewall-leslie-lohman-museum While making my 6 hour film 'Offshoots,' a social documentary study of Instagram, I focused a good deal on non-conformers. That is people that do not conform to societal standards. (And 'non-conforming' is a title that many proudly call themselves.) I found the odd thing about the non-conformers is; while they refuse to conform to society, they demand everyone else conforms to their demands. Well, that is how it is in 2019...art must be done on a formula to satisfy the critics.
This is clip from 'Genderqueer ' - a 60 min social documentary experimental film I made from Instagram on the gender busting revolution. The film has 6 sections: 'Drag Queens' 'Transvestites, Crossdressers & Femboys' 'Transition' (MTF) 'Transmen' (FTM) 'Lesbians' 'Disciples of Androgyne' Back in the day I didn’t know any better, so I lumped drag queens, transvestites and transgender devotees all into one pile. I think every gender bender, whatever their end goal is, started out as a cross dresser to get a taste of being a woman. As I did some homework on the subject I could see that a 'T gal' is very different from your garden variety transvestite / drag queen / cross dresser. A true T gal has put in a lot of time, money and energy transitioning in various degrees from male to female. She grows plump breasts and womanly nipples from taking HRT and sometimes supplements them with breast implants. She loses muscles, develops hips and soft, hairless skin. Her voice may change and some have painful surgery for cosmetic reasons and to remove the penis and replace it with a vagina. Gender bending all starts with a little pill nowadays. Or for 'female to male' it is injections. Here is a list of areas the transwoman works on: Self-esteem / Self-acceptance Coming out Social adaption Hair removal Voice training Socialization as female Hormone therapy Hair removal Wardrobe replacement Future employment prospects Sex Reassignment Surgery Legal / Name change / Gender marker change Whereas, the only work the transvestite / drag queen / cross dresser does is to put on some women’s clothes, false breasts, hip pads and makeup. For female to male it is the opposite of what the transwoman does in some cases. Now, I'm no expert on all this, but this is my take on the gender benders of 2019.
