Stolen & Forbidden: Gay men read from work they were forbidden to read

Featuring: Clint Catalyst, Bernard Cooper, Jonny McGovern, Steven Reigns, and Bruce Vilanch. Special welcome by John D'Amico Stolen & Forbidden: Before the Internet, pilferage and privacy breaking were common for young gay men looking for answers and others like themselves in the words of books and magazines they were denied access to by price, age, or shame. The stories that accompany these texts are just as amusing as the text themselves. Five gay men talk about and read the text that was forbidden or they stole in their youth. The act of sneak reading is a common experience. The length one goes to do it is often comical. Presented by Steven Reigns and the City of West Hollywood as a preview to the One City One Pride Queer Arts Festival.
