Still from My Hustler

"The infamous social space of Andy Warhol's factory stood in stark contrast to the strictly heteronormative and repressive outside world. The Factory was a space to embody and perform queerness. Warhol turned to film in part because he felt that, unlike the medium of silkscreen, it would enable him to reveal everything about his subjects: he and his performers could explore aspects of their queer selves openly."- Mana Contemporary
