COWBOYSCOWGIRLS by Pioneers Go East Collective
ONE NIGHT ONLY!
COWBOYSCOWGIRLS is an intimate performance art and video installation examining two generations of gay men (one a baby boomer, the other a generation X). At 45-minutes – this live performance includes a documentary interview with Agosto Machado – activist and drag queen who witnessed the Gay Liberation Movement, Stonewall, Sylvia Rivera and Marsha P. Johnson. The work examines how civil rights have improved for the LGBTQ+, human rights and inclusion in New York City, and sexual freedom from a younger gay man’s perspective. On stage performer/storyteller Daniel Diaz echoes and reflects on the stories Agosto Machado describes in the video interview – through movement and spoken word.
