Erotic City Shorts

Time travel with us through San Francisco on an erotic exploration of the transgressive, queer spirits that have inhabited these streets and these sheets for decades. Bouncing from the early 1980s to present day, this program is a saucy city symphony of our fair city, featuring bold, fun, controversial works from Curt McDowell, Jiz Lee, Brontez Purnell, Aron Kantor, Shine Louise Houston, and Christopher Lee.
