Welcome to Gayside- Logan MacDonal, Ginger Brooks Takahashi, Onya Hogan-Finlay
"In 1985, residents of Gayside, Newfoundland, a small town in the Canadian Maritimes voted to re-name their hometown, Baytona after enduring increased harassment. Was this an effort to distance the small town from any references to gay culture, especially in light of a new, terrifying AIDS epidemic? Inspired by this tale, and mindful of the climate of social prejudice in heat of the 1980s AIDS crisis, The Third Leg locates another Gayside."

GORGEOUS & IMPORTANT!
“Alter Gogo” is a diptych portrait series featuring a group of grandmothers who are members of the Gogo Getters Football Club in Orange Farm, South Africa. For them, playing football is more than a recreational activity; it’s also had a profound social and physical impact on their lives. In a community plagued with social and physiological problems like high unemployment, crime, alcoholism, diabetes and high-blood pressure, football serves as a salve. And all too often in collective imaginary, African women are located in the sphere of tradition and oppression, especially when they reach old age. With the grandmothers’ regalia and their proud postures both on the pitch and at home, “Alter Gogo” creates a powerful socio-cultural scenario in which soccer is the means and expression of a new gender and generation identity.
