In honor of the 100th anniversary of Harry Hay's birth, CLAGS and the Harry Hay Centennial Committee will sponsor a weekend conference exploring Hay's life and ideas and the multiple facets of LGBT life that Harry Hay himself pioneered. These aspects will be organized around four major themes: the arts, political activism, spirituality and sexual identities. The conference will feature presentations from scholars, activists and artists all exploring the evolution of LGBT life in the 60+ years since Hay and a small cohort of Californians founded the Mattachine Society.

Defying standards of narrative cinema and normative desire, embracing radical politics and documenting the freaky beauty of queer culture, these shorts range from video performance to stunning 16mm celluloid, from campy debauchery to sensual studies in light and texture. This program brings together filmmakers from Los Angeles, San Francisco, Oakland, Portland, and Seattle whose work exemplifies the passionate eyes of today’s queer avant-garde. Included in the program is Even, As You and I (1937) an avant-garde send up of European Surrealist film directed by and starring Harry Hay, Roger Barlow, and LeRoy Robbins.
