00000000 Gay Sex PosterYou read that right: as part of a National Coming Out Week Celebration, the University of North Dakota 10% Society, along with the Ruby River Society, is sponsoring a screening of the documentary Gay Sex In The 70s.  Why, you ask?  I say, “Why the hell not!?”

Actually, there is a little more to the story.  This documentary features the late Barton Benes, a longtime friend to the North Dakota Museum of Art.  Benes’ works have often highlighted issues of HIV & AIDS, especially among gay men’s communities.  Sometimes controversial, Benes’ works are thought-provoking and edgy, and also beautiful.  The screening of the film also coincides with an installation at the NDMOA, Barton Place Apartment, where Benes’ New York apartment has been “reconstructed” within the Museum, and attendees of the film will have a chance to get special, in depth tours of the exhibit after the show.

The event will take place on Wednesday, October 8, and doors open at 6:30 pm with the movie starting at 7 pm; small group tours will take place after the 71 minute film, and refreshments will be available.  The event is free and open to the public; those wishing to make a donation to the North Dakota Museum of Art may do so at the event.
