Introduction by hosts and programmers Elizabeth Purchell and KJ Shepherd Monday, April 29 at 7:00 p.m.!

Preceded by Henry Hanson’s ode to the love between (totally straight) trans bros, BROS BEFORE (19 min).

“Being a fag is a definite plus.” A swishy gay hairdresser lusts for a skinhead in Bruce LaBruce’s self-described “politico-comical porno home art movie.” Both a loose remake of Robert Altman’s adaptation of Richard Miles’ novel THAT COLD DAY IN THE PARK and a vivid portrait of Toronto’s queercore scene, NO SKIN OFF MY ASS is an uncompromising—and rarely screened—classic of early New Queer Cinema.
