Leslie/Lohman Gay Art Foundation

The Leslie/Lohman Gay Art Foundation (LLGAF) is a public not-for-profit 501(c)3 arts organization committed to providing a forum to further the awareness, appreciation and preservation of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender art.

It should be noted that there is a wide gap between gay and str8 values when it comes to subject matter worthy of being termed "art." Some of the images on the LLGAF web site cannot legally be displayed in public in many parts of the United States.

Gay art can take sometimes very original forms... Do you remember that brillant pro-condoms-cartoon created by TBWA? It has got a gay analogon, as brillant. You can watch it (media player plug-in required) here:

P.S. I had to modify the path to the video file because the access became disabled in the meanwhile. If the above link does not function, you shall search for a file named RF2006_504025_ZDT6T.mov on Google (http://google.com). The file can be downloaded and played by the Quick Time Player (http://www.apple.com/de/quicktime/win.html).

Through gay art of the above type for example,and conveniently put to the service of political propaganda,one must fall in love with the guy on
the picture,be moved by some grandiose landscape behind it,by some scene of historical action and by the message,and litterally become infatuated with the project of a gay independent State and country.Propaganda through image must aim at the lowest tribal and nationalistic instincts among gays,thus completing propaganda by text which appeals and aims solely to reason.

Lastly, what do you think the guy in "Station Four" starring at the pizza is thinking? http://www.rickchris.com/galleries/new_purchase/STAFOURweb.jpg

That it's nowhere near enough pizza for nine burly fellows.
