The Gay Utopia was a project of art, criticism, and collective jouissance I put together in 2007. Unfortunately, the site I used to host images at the time folded, leaving the project much dimished. I’ve decided to try to move what I can over here for stability and archival purposes.
The original map of the gay utopia is here. I will add links to gay utopia posts on this site as they go up. This will take some time, and I don’t know if I’ll be able to get permissions for all of them, but we’ll do our best.
