"He's... appeared on the cover of the San Francisco Bay Guardian and the Express, ranked on Out Magazine's annual 'Hot List,' programmed performance art at the Berkeley Art Museum, and recently co-starred in the independent film I Want Your Love."
How do I hype my own sexuality to get it such notices? At 64, I'm tired of paying for it while being told by self-important "queers" that (as a gay white male) my time is past, and I should fade gracefully (and gratefully) into history!
I want to repost a comment left by someone on a Facebook post regarding this article.They put it so well. I couldn't say it better. I hope they don't mind.
"This is problematic because it clearly makes distinctions between "poor" aka "those that need" and "rich" aka "those that give. It frames her in such a way that it becomes another "white savior narrative." It's a good idea but location and situation create a different set of politics around it. The way the article frames it also doesn't help the case.
More than anything it's a division of status and class. Yesterday some art student said "I like working in grungy, filthy areas of society, so I don't mind working in low-income society spaces." This only reinforces this idea of the patting themselves on the back and breaking ground on new ideas that have long existed and been in places.
Another question that arises is "social practice," what is it? And how is the narrative being framed and shaped by institutions and the media? Why write about her and not all the projects that come out of east side arts? Their work is as much valid in social practice as hers. Those of us in the field have to be very careful in how we use that term and frame our projects- and also be vocal. It's a new term being thrown around to label any art in the world that's outside institutions. And don't even get me started on institutions and what they say about things as such..."
East Bay Express told me they don't write these kind of articles, when we were doing something similar at Moco in downtown Oakland two years ago. I think we were too ethnic for your paper maybe.

Rad. PS He probably meant commodify not commodity ("I don't want commodity fetishism to create these distances between me and my own heritage")
