7. THEATER: thirtynothing
In his bold and biting new multimedia solo performance, which runs through October 22 at New York’s Dixon Place, Dan Fishback juxtaposes the dawn of the AIDS crisis with his own childhood while exhuming obscure work by late gay artists like Mark Morrisroe, David Wojnarowicz, David B. Feinberg, and Essex Hemphill. The production includes a series of events about the disease’s cultural legacy. For more info visit DanFishback.com.
6. BOOK: Remembering Christmas
The gay ghosts of Christmases past are exorcised in this brisk and sentimental holiday-themed anthology: In Tom Mendicino’s “Away in a Manger,” a snowbound traveler connects with a small-town bartender; in Frank Anthony Polito’s “A Christmas to Remember,” a college guy finds unexpected love back home; and in Michael Salvatore’s “Missed Connections,” old friends reminisce in an airport lounge on Christmas Eve.
5. FILM: The Sons of Tennessee Williams
Out October 7 in limited release, Tim Wolff’s ennobling civil rights documentary about the history of gay carnival balls in New Orleans reveals how, over five decades, krewes of flamboyantly determined “southern bachelors” transformed these targets of antigay criminalization into the most beloved and bedazzled annual events in town. The colorful film culminates with the 40th anniversary ball of the Krewe of Armeinius in 2008.
