Disability is often linked with undesirability, being unwanted. I wanted to explore disability as desirability. People with disabilities have always been hot and desirable, but I wanted to put it into the cultural sphere. With Want, I was telling my sexual story.-If you are in Montreal, go check out Want tomorrow (Monday) night, 7 pm, at the VAV gallery.

Loree Erickson's work raises a lot of great questions about porn's ability to be transformative and revolutionary. What do you think? Can porn serve as a vehicle for social justice? Have you ever been confronted with a pornographic work that completely destabilized your sense of self and the way you look at the world? (I definitely have-- thank you, Patrick Califia).
I think Loree Erickson is incredibly brave for putting herself out there so completely, and for doing social justice work on so many different fronts. Being a self-defined "queer femmegimp" means that Loree Erickson has to deal with a number of systemic barriers on a daily basis-- but that doesn't stop her from doing such important activist work. Thank you, Loree.
Have a great week,
