Penny Arcade Bitch! Dyke! Faghag! Whore!
Silkscreen poster, 1517x1022 mm, 59 3/4x40 1/4 inches. [Australia.] 1995.

Conceived in the early 1990s as a "fuck you" response to Senator Jesse Helms's stance on banning obsence art from the NEA, Penny Arcade's show has been performed on and off ever since and is considered a "joyful, sex-positive, queer carnival that asks us to get up from our seats and dance, even as it nurses our political and spiritual wounds."
