Getting what you want - Page 3

Second annual This Is What I Want plumbs the nature of desire

Feed the need: This Is What I Want performer Annie Danger

That said, organizing events where lots of people get together to witness creative manifestations of politically charged truth-telling seems like a fucking great idea. I think that a pretty sturdy legion of contemporary (and often queer-identified) artists will stand behind me when I say we're here to crack your chest right open and fill you with our curiosities — because within them are the imaginings and strategies for a sweeter, braver, and more communicative system for us all. And we won't stop until you get it.
