Third Person: (When the) LGB (f**ks the) T (and how to make love instead)
Third Person is an in-your-face, engaging, multi-media look at how the LGB treats and has treated the "T" throughout history. Starting with the Compton Cafeteria and Stonewall Riots to the modern day gay rights movement, it calls out the ways the LGBT community claims unity but creates barriers to inclusion of transpeople to the detriment of our entire community's civil rights efforts.
Transgender artist Joshua Klipp gets deep in Third Person. He dives into the subject matter illustrated with the iconic work of photographers Daniel Nicoletta and Amos Mac, sound scored to his own pre- and post-transition vocals, featuring his hip hop dance company Freeplay Dance Crew, woven together with narrative including excerpts of historical LGBT civil rights speeches and writings. Throughout the dissection, Josh bares his deeply personal experiences, humanizing what is often treated as an intellectual discourse.
Ultimately, "Third Person" suggests healing with live examples of what is achieved when diversity and similarity are celebrated, rather than placing focus on parsing identity camps. Third Person's energetic finale premieres Josh's new music video as well as previously unreleased music featuring Josh and Katastrophe. Third Person exposes raw nerves, engages in meaningful dialogue, and leaves you believing in hope for our community and our world.
