Dirty Gay Soundwalk

Dirty Gay Soundwalk by Todd Shalom (NYSAE)

Friday, October 16, 2009 and Saturday, October 17, 2009

Forty years post-Stonewall and the NYPD is still entrapping gay men for soliciting prostitutes at adult video stores (aka "bookstores") around the city. Join me while we walk around the 14th Street vicinity with focused awareness to the sounds around us. What's the sound of gay today and where does gay history echo in the present soundscape? On this 90 minute participatory soundwalk, we'll actively listen to the bars and video stores in Chelsea, the leather menagerie on Christopher Street and the late nite crowds at the piers. All are welcome. 21+ please. Capacity: 15 people. Free. RSVP required for a spot:

10:30 pm sharp. Meet at the SW corner of 14th St. and 8th Ave.; Manhattan.


  1. Due to the wind and the rain expected for Friday night, the Friday Dirty Gay Soundwalk is postponed. The Saturday soundwalk is still on until further notice.


  2. Due to the wind and the rain expected for Saturday night, the Saturday Dirty Gay Soundwalk is postponed too. New date: 10/23. Email me for further details: todd [at] elastic-city [dot] com
