At the 2021 Printed Matter Virtual Book Fair, Book Works will host an online event to present Dark Room: San Francisco Sex and Protest 1988-2003 – the first ever collection of Phyllis Christopher’s trailblazing photography of lesbian erotic life and political struggle. The event will stream live as part of the Classroom programme at Printed Matter on 25th February 2021 at 2pm EST (7pm GMT).
In 1988, at the age of 24, Phyllis Christopher was drawn to San Francisco with her camera to capture a thriving lesbian counterculture involving sex parties, kiss-ins, and street demonstrations. This program features an intimate conversation about lesbian sexuality and documentary on the occasion of Phyllis Christopher’s debut solo publication, Dark Room (Book Works, 2021). The conversation will include Christopher and acclaimed author Michelle Tea, moderated by Laura Guy, editor of Dark Room.
