A Look at Jennie Livingston's 1990 documentary Paris is Burning
"Hello and welcome to Queer as fiction we talk about Queer historical media I'm Jason and I may lie and today we're talking about Jenny. Livingston's nineteen ninety. Documentary. Paris's Bang. Before we start, we have a few called him warnings to this episode. This episode contains mentions of Racism Transphobia Homophobia the AIDS epidemic murder and family rejection. It also contains the use of outdated language surefooted by Queer people on people, call it in courts. If any of that sounds like something, you don't want to listen to please feel free to check out one of. Our other episodes. So I wanted to stop this episode by explaining what is Paris's banning because I feel like a lot of listeners probably a pretty good understanding of this documentary. Some very young listeners may not have seen it. I said Hanson had you seen it before we researched this ups lot no but I had a pirated version of a hard drive for decades. I love with things and have adhd. reasonable. So I was aware of it but I hadn't actually seen it. Yeah. I think I heard the name but didn't know what it was. So Paris is burning is a documentary about the bowl culture scene of New York in the nineteen eighties prominently featuring the African American and Latin American members of that community many among gay and or trans. It documents how they lives intersect with the Bulls the form, the Bulls tight and contains several interviews, participants, explaining concepts, such shade, realness reading, and legendary woods that may be familiar to a modern audience given how by propagated in popular drag culture. Yeah on TIKTOK. The documentary features no narration and very little dialogue from the interview wide lesbian filmmaker. Jenny. Livingston prominent members of several houses in the scene featured including pepple of Asia during Corey Angie Extravaganza and Willi? Ninja. I'll make a nerd here on pronounce while several of the performance featured in Paris boning. Ambiguously Trans Women and so I'm GonNa to share pronounced where I don't have specific evidence I. Do want to note that pepple of Asia describes himself in the documentary is not being woman not understanding the experience of womanhood and being on In a sex change however, her two thousand and three obituary in the new. York. Times describes her as preferring in pronounce ongoing with that as the more recent source compared to this documentary which was filmed in the eighties. So having talked about what Paris has been is I want to I going to kind of how was made so as described by Academic Lucas, Hildebrand in his twenty thirteen book quit film classics Piracy's Boning, which was a major source when I was researching this episode Livingston was taking a film production class at NEOCON. INVESTI windshield observed three young men voguish in Washington. Square Park after asking what they were doing she was invited to an upcoming bowl and soon thereafter began documenting the scene via black and white photographs and audio interviews which were kind of the mediums in which she worked at the time. She was really documentary filmmaker. This was her first data and she since gone on to make several more films which obviously less notable. Because I don't know what they. Yeah. That's pretty wild. Are they on like queer things. Yeah I, believe her I think there's like Queer Antenna. Seems to many of her films. So yeah, it was only the light of that. She began filming the balls and coming up with the idea of turning these into a documentary. Film took seven years to make in no small pod Judah. The struggles Livingston had funding its production. She initially intended it to be appealing observational documentary just kind of following the lives of the Queen's involved in the same but lacked the funding to shoot the endless hours of footage that would be required for such a production. I'm not really an expert on how documentary films of made. Films something like seventy or eighty hours of footage as it is. So like, wow, that must have been. Lot of what is required for something without the kind of caught away stained. Interesting to think about funding a project like this in like post the iphone world. Because there's like a very like obviously a useless modern. Just, film it like whistle the money going yeah. It's like it's interesting. She talks about the various ways in which the film was funded was funded by a bunch of different organization. Thirteen. Different organizations contributed funding including the baby say. And she stalked interviews about how? It's the late eighties you conscious show someone from the BBC your footage you have to fly someone out from. England oh. Wow. Yeah. My Gosh and show them a physical film real. So is that indicative of a certain level of like promises project was seen to have if she was able to show it to someone like that or did this happen quite routinely it was just logistically difficult Y-. Oh. Yeah. So instead of a purely observational documentary, the earlier interviews that she'd recorded were bought back and more interviews were conducted. Most notably interviews conducted in one thousand, nine, hundred, nine broad sense of narrative to the film by depicting the commercial success of Willi Ninja, as well as the tragic murder of Vance Extravaganza young star in the bowl seen who features prominently throughout the Documentary Livingston has self describes the film making process as followers. Suddenly, the people I filmed worked with me in pop because I represented a chance to speak out to be in front of a camera to show off I, consider Paris burning collaboration on the deepest level, the people who. Are Articulate funny poised while the editor and I made coherent full that we saw the documentary was truly written by the bowl people themselves I use that quite because questions of narrative agency consent and understanding of the nature of the documentaries production became deeply controversial upon the film's release and will form a pot about lighter discussion. But before we get into that, I wanted to do a bit

"I was just going to say that the show Fear City I mean this as I say this limited Siri's I guess it's three hours documentary focuses on the mob. But what you're pointing out is interesting because I think it applies to other parts of the society. I've always said. I think we're getting fat and happy and a lot of ways when you find it with even vaccines. Now you couldn't talk about vaccines and legitimate conversation's going to be had around vaccines, You know, cos we're indemnified from from liability. I mean, a lot of things that were supposed to happen in regard of vaccines that didn't happen. I'm talking about governmental restrictions and protections for consumers and those getting that scenes so we could Of those conversations, but the idea somehow that you know vaccines are unnecessary. That comes from period that just sort of a quiet period because we've eradicated Essentially, as far as American left goes, those things actions were against and you're talking about that same thing with law enforcement. That's very smart mark that light polio. We're still epidemic in this country. We would not be having these vaccine conversations. Exactly. And if crime we're still epidemic In this country. We would not be having the conversation we're having right now. Absolutely. But again if you grown up that appear where crime was really not a factor in your life in terms of where you walked at night who you hung out with. No. Where you where you went on vacation. Even Then you don't get it. You don't get it. The the Siri's just cause I've really gotten into it. I was mentioning it off the top of the show and mention that you were going to come on on. As I say. We're talking over Rollo. His column in the Hill turned me on to the Siri's. I didn't was even aware of it before and it's new. It's a new documentary on Netflix. It made me aware of the fact that even the cops and they're clearly gifted people who are ready to risk a lot. To take on the mob in New York of some of them because they were Italian, and they resented the fact that now Italian Americans were associated with the underworld and corruption. They they had to change their tactics to in going after the Mafia. Yeah, they absolutely did. They had to. First of all, you had to treat the Mafia in a different way. This was not the Mafia of the 19 forties and the Godfather movies. These were very sophisticated guys. Who put the organized in organized crime. It was like going after a CEO in a white collar crime world, only much tougher criterion killed so they had to change their tactics they had to get. They had to nail down every single case and among those guys who were Italian American. The leader of the pack of prosecutors and FBI agents was Rudy Giuliani. This was back in the days when Giuliani was something of a hero, not something very much a hero in New York for sport, leading the charge against the mob and tearing down the five families, which began to break the back of crime in New York and a lot of other cities where those five families also controlled crime organizations. And so I'm getting at the fact that might policing have to take on a different tactic. I mean, this is again sort of out of your your area of expertise. You talk about media and politics. But it is provocative. That way. I was wondering, Is there any way it could be, You know, policing, Khun B. Reimagine. You hear that statement around this whole de funding the police issue reimagine the police force. Underst wondering some tactics may have to change. No, I think so. Listen, I think, Trust me. The anger coming from black and brown communities about policing is justified they again even in the seventies Crime wave. They suffered all the arrests. Because that was easy. That was easy, too great to sweep Washington Square Park and get a humble a bunch of these guys and throwing them in jail when it was the Italian guys who are really controlling everything, so I get it. I get it, and I think there are answers. I point out in the column, New York has begun some small scale experimental programs at a much more community based Much more cop on the beat. Sort of talking with people in the community, whole, our leaders, young people, They're not. They're not executives or or or people who work for a nonprofit but just young folk on the streets. On helping get information about where crime might be popping up, and it seems to be working. So I think that community approach that That deals with minority communities in a different way, has a shot of working his approach that needs more manpower needs smarter police and more of them, So I don't know. Do fun things The answer there, But it definitely isn't approach that released so far says Look, you can have it both ways you can support the police. And also not humiliate. Minority communities or subject a whole new generation of them to abuse by the police. Right, right, right. And then you get to training people say, Well, you can't train on racism and you know this institutional racism and it really, You know these air legitimate points as well. But I think the notion of fewer cops concerns me. I mean, just personally and you just text we did get a text during your comments. This. Welcome to welcome to the party. So here's the text. Crime is rampant in major cities. Most of all Because they're run by a perpetual Democrats. Much fix it at its core..

And now you have somebody editing yourself to have somebody like like Kurt is just it's just invaluable. I mean, he's really knowledgeable and listeners will discover he's been all over the place. Seen everything done everything and and what I really liked about him is that there's always questions that come up. When you're editing somebody's copy and you gotta you'll change it are here to try to get a hold the person he would always Try to get a hold of me. Uh, usually by telephone. You know, I just got this one question about your career column in which you really appreciate as opposed to somebody just changing it without talking to you. And maybe they don't get what you're saying. You would like to have a say in the matter. I I recall never really calling him on. So Yeah, You're right. You're right, Kurt. Thank you so much. It wasn't like he was coming up to some ridiculous suggestion. And, uh, I was sorry to see him leave The Chronicle. Yeah. Great story Really. Fans are going to enjoy. And I'm glad that you got to know him when you were the copy editor who did you edit? Who was some of the people that you had to call and say, Look, you know It was first and third. Not the first and second. Well, I edited Bob Stevens for years, and not only that I've mostly died took dictation because I was the fastest type is probably in the whole building. And I went when men Bob Stevens are Jack Smith or whoever it was, Um You got on the line with their with their game stories. They were that they were dictating which over the phone, which is a real and in that, In that case, you're really you're you're taking dictation, and you might even do some editing at the same time you want, but I gotta stick a common there or maybe a dasher. Maybe that's just an excessive words, something that nobody could argue. You know, when you when you're dictating, it's easier to make mistakes that you'd love to have Just one more. Look at it. It's supposed to do Get it off the top of your head, but but later on, uh you know, I did it, um not not just the base, or you will get it. Ira Miller, you know, covering it wherever he was maybe covering and earlier That was our expander. You know, I got it. I got a chance. Tio. It's some of the really, really great sports writers. And it's It's invaluable because you get used to their style and he realized what makes him so good. And, uh, you know, the really good ones. You don't really To touch Glen Dickey. You know he has contractors or his stuff was so clean. I don't know if I touched it in eight years. But, you know, it's a cz. You're talking. I'm sitting here and saying If I didn't go to the game and that everything was on TV, I guess maybe could hear it on the radio of Don't know how you would follow it, but To sit there and type of Bob Stevens is Game story is like one of the most thrilling things you could ever do and creating. Hey would say in whether hot enough to melt the paint off of battleship comma, and I'm just a spirit Giants pieces at the banquet table of base hits comments, some of them gorging themselves obscenely. I mean, this is Bob Stevens on deadline. I mean, what a what A what a treasure to be quick and accurate and also Hysterically funny. I mean, that's that's his priceless and he was with us for decade after decade, he goes way back to the seals way before I got there, and he was an honor to work with him. Well, Curt says the same thing about Ostler You know who's who's so clever with the words. Oh, God, very rarely would ever say anything. But if he ever did, Scott would just say. Don't even mention it. Please go ahead. Make me better. Yeah, that's that's exactly right. And you, he says he never had a touch anything you wrote. That's what he said. I don't think that's true. But God bless all right. Very good. Well, we may have baseball this week. Let's started.

Revisiting the Archive: Larry Kramer
"I've talked before in this series revisiting the archive about anger. How it can fuel action? How an anger is partnered with love? It can produce a kind of righteous rage that propels us those of us who lived through the AIDS crisis. Know about it. Some of US learned it from Larry Kramer who died this week in Manhattan where he's lived for. Decades Larry was famous for being one of the first billions to sound the alarm during that last epidemic. The one that began forty years ago he was on the front lines even before aids was called AIDS and became a global epidemic at swept away more than thirty million lives before AIDS. Larry was best known for his work as a screenwriter and author but the virus that was claiming so many lives in the political indifference political negligence that greeted it turned Larry into a very public activist. His friends were dying and he felt compelled to do something more than to just bury the dead and mourn their loss in nineteen. Eighty-two Larry co-founded a gay men's health crisis now known as GM five years later he co-founded act up the AIDS coalition to unleash power. Act Up came to be known for its brilliant use of public protests to bring attention to the epidemic by early nineteen eighty nine. When I I met Larry AIDS take in more than sixty thousand lives. Most of them. Gay Men Larry quickly earned a reputation as an uncompromising firebrand with a fierce temper. I'm not proud of it. But that kind of person generally inspires me to run in the other direction. I was more than a little anxious. I approached the door to Larry's apartment in a building that fronts Washington Square Park in New York. City's Greenwich Village. As I said when this episode originally aired I got myself worked up. Nothing I brace myself for a tornado and found the teddy bear. Here's the same. Larry welcomed me into a spacious apartment and showed me into his all white book line living room and I took a seat opposite him across a broad desk as I said at my tape recorder and attach the Mike to his shirt. We talked about how we both had wanted to find a husband early in life and settle down and that led us back in time to Larry's memories as it confused and Unhappy College student in the Early Nineteen fifties. I pressed record interview with Larry Kramer Thursday January twenty six thousand nine hundred eighty nine at the home of Larry Kramer in New York City. Interviewer is Eric. Marcus tape one side one. When I went to Yale I thought I was the only gay person in the world and tried to kill myself because I was so lonely. Did try to What am I think that was fifty? Three was the year my freshman year. Yeah is awful. I mean I do want to go back that far curious because I was a college student on seventy six desperately unhappy. We're at Vassar College. There were there were a lot of gays. They weren't that many people think there were a lot if there were so many gays. Why was I so unhappy? Miserable person and And deaths seemed very appealing at moments during my freshman year when I was dating a woman in making off the man by in life and fifty three must have been much more difficult than seventy six at Vassar. You can even start in shifty. Three Easter I knew I was gay. I think from the day I was born and I think that there have been I. I now know that there were isolate. They were experiences all through before. I even got to Yale. And they were all covert in guilt. Inducing on on everybody's part so the it seemed as if all those early years were spent trying to deny these feelings the feelings would sort of get to strong erupt in and I would have an experience. Which would autumn always make me feel guilty in one way or another and then you put it you become. Sylvia's would come down for a while a week a week or two and Yale was awful. There was a gay bar called parolees. It was awful the time when I finally have the courage to go there. It was only two blocks from campus. But it was a million years away. It was very dark and grey and inside and smokey and and filled with old old older man and I only went the once and somebody picked me up. A car drove for like hours before we found a place that was quiet to do it and then he drove me back where you didn't say a word all of that list of yourself. I eight two hundred aspirin. Oh my God talk about slow and Miss. You must have been pretty miserable to swallow two hundred and yours anymore. Will after you wanted out. Was that who knows. It's a scene. I'll never forget the scene of taking pills the Yup and find you're still better. I didn't wake up. I I went to bed and I got scared and I call. The campus. Police came took me to the hospital and put myself and that was in woke then I fell asleep and I woke up in a room with bars and after grace new haven hospital and there. Was this very unpleasant hospital psychiatrist. Who said all right Mr Cramer? Why did you do it and I go fuck yourself or words to that end he said? I'm now you're not going to be let out of this hospital until you tell us why you did it. And I just had a few rubbed me the wrong way and I wouldn't have told who who knew why I did it anyway. So my brother who's always sort of looked after me came and got me out and he was friends with the dean of Freshmen. My brother had been the before me and And it was you know ordinarily when something like that happen you were shipped off to go join the army really in those days. Yeah and then you come back to Yale and you've grown up but they let me stay. If I went to the University of Coyote. Just his name was Dr Fry Clement Fry.
