I edited this video a few years ago, and finally got it online with some help from my webmaster. It was my first attempt at video editing, and since the panel was so lively, it was very difficult to chop it down to a watchable (or so I believed) length. Paper's editor, David Hershkovitz presided, and the panelists included John Cameron Mitchell, Michael Musto, drag king Murray Hill, Boy George, and myself. The sound quality isn't top notch, and the editing (2 cameras) isn't exactly stellar. I know that Boy George is not gonna like the constant side angle we used on him, and I thank Satan that my double chins aren't shot from that angle. However, I do think that Boy George will be delighted at how insightful and funny he comes across. He'd been living in NYC for about a year at the time this was shot, and was totally part of the downtown gang, so he felt quite free to insult us all, especially me! Besides the intro which I narrate, the only other B-roll footage is a quick shot of the luscious Amanda LePore. I felt the need to include it since at the time this was recorded (2003?), she had not yet sky-rocketed to international fame. Anyway, it's a little long--in 2 parts--so wait until you have a little time to check it out. I would love to know what you guys think of my fledgling directorial effort! And thanks to Paper for letting me combine their footage with mine. And for arranging the whole thing at the downtown W Hotel. And to the wine sponsor, which freed our tongues quite successfully.

i really liked this piece bunny and think you should continue your film endeavors! my only complaint was that the music was too loud during your narration - but was well-chosen and damn good for your first film! it's great to be reminded that drag queens kicked down the door for our rights...the gayz seem to forget that too often! ~devian

The sound was fine and I wish the film was longer. Really enjoyed it.

I enjoyed it thoroughly and was left wanting more, which means good editing. The Boy George Comment about sodomy will never be tolerated etc. Isn't it every straight man's fantasy to take their girlfriend up the shitter? I'm often plagued by women friends of mine asking me in strictest confidence advice about how to take a cock up the bum, I see the desperation in their eyes and tell them to practice with their fingers "when your comfy with 3 up your bum then it's time for hubby's cock, and if that fails send them round to my house!

I wish it were longer too...the film. And to bastardize a beautifully poetic phrase made an ugly cliche by Oprah - I am so glad to spell my name S-O-U-T-H-E-R-N M-A-N because of tremendous southern talents and minds like yours. Here's to a legend in the making. (You're still too young for full fledged status. :)
