LEGACY AWARD: ANNIE SPRINKLE AND BETH STEPHENS
Featuring, “Assuming the Ecosexual Position—A Show & Tell Performative Lecture”
Friday (2/19), 8:30pm, Salvage Vanguard Theater (2803 Manor Rd.)
Annie and Beth will weave together stories of their adventures in love, sex, death and art. Annie was a prolific sex worker who morphed into an internationally known performance artist with her one-woman show, Post Porn Modernist, when she showed her cervix and did sex magic rituals on stage. Beth was a feisty punk dyke playboy, interdisciplinary artist and professor at UCSC exploring themes of gender, queerness and feminism. The two met, fell heels-over-head in love and have collaborated together non-stop ever since. In 2008 Beth and Annie married the Earth and came out as hard-core ecosexuals, and developed a new field of research, “sexecology.” Their Ecosex Manifesto launched a movement and officially added the E to GLBTQI. These girls have gone green and are dirty and proud. See clips from their documentary film about coal mining, Goodbye Gauley Mountain—An Ecosexual Love Story (on Netflix & iTunes) and get a sneak peek of their work-in-progress, Water Makes Us Wet!
