Film Screening of Venus Boyz (2002)

Wed, April 21, 2010 • 4:45 PM • BUR 134

VENUS BOYZ explores how, for the various women involved, masculinity can be defined as performance, subversion, aesthetic choice or existential necessity. The Drag Kings profiled discuss their lives with candor, humor and insight, exploring or enacting male eroticism and power strategies with a self-confidence befitting the gender pioneers they are. As celebrated Drag King Mo B. Dick explains, "Instead of becoming an angry woman, I became a funny man." Baur also researches the world of female-to-male (FTM) and inter-sexed persons and follows their transformation, as we see women who experiment with male hormones to become 'new men' and 'cyborgs'.
