Where Love is Illegal exhibition

  • West Hollywood Library (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

72 countries around the world have criminal laws against sexual activity by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or intersex people. That’s 72 countries where people who love each other must do so in secret. While the laws of each country vary - from the intent to commit an obscene act, or the right to freedom of expression of sexuality and gender identity – the brutality of punishments are shocking in all of these countries, and include fines, imprisonment, torture and, in some instances, death. View the photographs and read stories from some of those who live in countries where love is illegal.

Trans artist Pilar Gallego has created a series of new artworks that interrogate the codification of bodies through clothing using vintage men’s button-down shirts from the 1950s and 60s—garments they long to wear but, according to the artist, never quite fit. “…what I am seeing in these dissections, is the same thing I did to my body when I underwent gender confirmation surgery, when I opened up my own body in order to create something new.

West Hollywood Artists and Icons: “When Bette Met Mae”

West Hollywood Artists and Icons: “When Bette Met Mae”

June 20, 2018 - When Bette Met Mae - photo credit Wes Wheadon.jpg

The first meeting of West Hollywood resident Bette Davis and screen icon Mae West took place in 1972 at the home of Charles Pollock on Orlando Avenue. It was a cocktail and dinner gathering of only seven people. Bette and Mae discussed their careers, loves, families, hopes and thoughts on work in film, their successes, men, and each other. It revealed a rare and personal glimpse of these strong women.

The evening's conversation was captured on cassette tape and 40 years later that tape was used to dub in the audio portion of a recreation of that evening using actors chosen to visually bring the guests to life while hearing the actual taped words of Bette Davis and Mae West.

The film represents a first effort in history to create video from an authentic live tape recording.
It is a fun, sometimes outrageous, entertaining and very personal historical look at two iconic women; unrehearsed, honest and a funny evening bringing the viewer to the party.

"When Bette Met Mae" is the winner of "Best Documentary" at Hollywood & Vine Film Fest, and "Audience Favorite Film" at the DTLA Film Festival.

This screening of the 65-minute documentary will be followed by a brief discussion/Q&A with Wes Wheadon, the Writer/Director of the film and a panel of people involved in the film.

Free Admission.
