Lesbian Rule. Forget the dead this Halloween. Feel the pulsing throb of something larger than life in KillJoy’s Kastle. Each Halloween radical evangelical groups build hell houses. These performer-animated installations showcase a gruesome retribution for the sins of fornication, abortion, suicide, occultism, and—of course—same-sex relationships.
This Halloween, Toronto based-artists Deirdre Logue and Allyson Mitchell reclaim this hellish scenario with their sex positive, trans inclusive, queer lesbian-feminist-fear-fighting celebration. I’m performing as a Paranormal Consciousness Raiser performing in the Kastle.
Organized by ONE Archives in West Hollywood, KillJoy’s Kastle: A Lesbian Feminist Haunted House is designed to pervert, not convert. This haunted house of freaky feminist skill sharing and paranormal consciousness-raising reanimates the archive of lesbian herstory with all its wonders and thorny complications.
