Why join Ira Sachs and Lily Binns in Queer/Art/Mentorship? Because what Werner Herzog and Alan J. Pakula did for me when I was just out of college was simple. They said (though not in these exact words), "You go, girl!"
I hope our willingness to present our queerness, in our bodies, ideas and works of art, makes our mentors proud of the careers they've fought for. They've made this protest against the privileges of so-called normalcy possible.
