Responding to a complaint from the Catholic League, the Nation Portrait Gallery removed and banned the ” Fire in my Belly” video from the NPG gay and lesbian exhibit Hide/Seek.
The video was made by David Wojnarowicz, who died from AIDS related complications in 1992. The two martyrs responsible for keeping this video visible are Blasenstein , 37 who happen to be gay, along with 36 year-old Micheal Dax Iacovone, who is straight. After being banned from the Smithsonian’s exhibit for holding mobile devices displaying the ” Fire in my Belly” video the two parked a temporary, trailer museum just outside the Smithsonian in an effort to show censorship can only go so far.
Ultimately, the two want to have the video return to the exhibit. At the very least, until then viewing by the public can continue.
Thanks guy, BAD ASS.
We will not be stopped! I will visiting the trailer Friday, if anyone wants to join me. I decided that I’ll let the snow clear up, first. My stilettos don’t like snow.
