John Greyson: Urinal and Other Stories


$20.00 now $10.00

, the acclaimed feature film by John Greyson which won the Best Gay Feature Teddy Bear award at the 1988 Berlin Film Festival, is an eccentric docu-drama about competing discourses, embattled sexualities, surveillance technologies, and toilets. This volume contains the complete screenplay of the film, as well as seven related image-text works by Greyson that variously interrogate the pitfalls and pleasures of our media-mapped identities. Alive with the pain of the AIDS epidemic, alert to the perversity of our pleasures, engaged in the dilemmas of our activism, these queer ‘stories’ behold, as Bill Horrigan notes in his introduction, “a future open city in the making where ruins aren’t ruins, they’re foundations, and barricades aren’t barricades, they’re towers.”
