What’s turning me on this week? Transsexuals. Transvestites. Drag queens.
It’s Fantastic Fest time in Austin, and we here at Reject HQ are celebrating sex in ways you never knew we could. Details notwithstanding, let’s just say that both goings-on at the HQ and the line-up of sex on-screen have provided for more than a few eye-openers. From the hyper-evocative Antichrist to the more-than-a-little-bit-fun Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl, to vintage smut like The Barebreasted Countess, it’s certainly shaping up to be an enlightening week. Fantastic Fest is a time of Asiansploitation, kooky genre films, and titillating images galore. From movies to pole dancing at the new Alamo Drafthouse debauchery venue Highball to drunkenly boarding (not driving) the Reject HQ Party Bus, even I am on sensory overload. Taking a short break from this week-long bender to think about how we bend gender has been especially tough, but I believe it to be important nonetheless.
