From Toilets to Tablets: Cruising Through Time
Cinema Queer in collaboration with ArkDes proudly presents an evening in the footpaths of cruising with a curated selection of short films in the garden on Skeppsholmen, a panel discussion addressing cruising as an act of resistance, and guided tour with James Taylor-Foster of the exhibition Cruising Pavilion: Architecture, Gay Sex and Cruising Culture in Boxen at ArkDes.
Since the dawn of time, queers have hooked up for sex in all corners of society: in parks, alleys, on beaches and toilets, in clubs and in basements. With two short film programmes Cinema Queer makes space for some of these stories – some true, and some fiction. In From Toilets to Tablets: Cruising Through Time we present the raunchy, the tender, the political, the naked, the power and the resistance that is inherent in cruising.
