Quotes

"[Gallery owner] Laura Henkel picked September for my show because there are a lot of queer themes in my work," Shifflett told the B A R last week. "My paintings are very technique driven. The queerness is subconscious. Since my painting process is so time intensive I pick subjects that are visually stimulating to me. Trying not to make a statement seems to produce a more authentic statement."
The policies "further fuel the epidemic by deterring those most in need from accessing lifesaving HIV prevention, treatment, and care services" said Birx, who joined the call for the people and the Ugandan government to "reject this regressive bill."
"I would say on average that everyone who comes to my class is non-traditional," he said. "They may not all look that way, but they are. That's why they come."
