Stonewall brings ‘Pose’ cast members to Orlando for Pride Events


Dominique Jackson doesn’t believe in tolerance. It’s a lesson she learned growing up on the island of Tobago as a little girl who was assigned male at birth. The transgender teen escaped to the United States and lived as an undocumented immigrant. Her family offered to help her become a legal resident as long as she kept her truth a secret. Jackson refused. The actress and model says, “”My life is not for someone else to accept. … When people told me they were tolerating the LGBTQ+ community, those feelings were coming from a place of privilege and superiority, not from a place of equality.” Jackson, though, found a real home in underground ballroom culture – much like Elektra Abundance, …

Dual-location exhibition portrays scenes of the African American experience


Too often art by what we refer to as “minorities” is forced to bear a double weight. We expect it to be not just beautiful, but also educational. Under that expectation, looking at art by women, people of color, disabled people and other artists in marginalized communities can then feel more preachy than pleasurable. Without leaving meaning or history behind, the show currently co-located at the Crealdé School of Art and the Hannibal Square Heritage Center is a pleasure to take in. Vibrant Vision is a selection of works by 20th-century African American artists drawn from the collection of Charleston painter Jonathan Green. Barbara Tiffany, Crealdé’s exhibitions curator, has chosen 26 works, some that “told profound stories about the artists …

Spotlight: Shampooch, Food and Drink Festival, and Milk Mart


I don’t own a dog. I own cats. They bathe themselves. Dogs don’t. Just one more reason why cats are better than dogs. If you weren’t lucky enough to be born a cat person and want to help out a good cause, bring your dog downtown for a doggie wash block party called Shampooch! All proceeds go to Rescue Me Orlando. The sudsing and scrubbing takes place Sunday 9 to 4 in front of Lambs Eat Ivy salon in Thornton Park. Last year more than 8,000 people attended the International Food and Drink Festival at Lake Eola Park according to the producers. I wasn’t there so I cannot vouch for them. But typically people don’t lie. I trust people. I …

Cornell Fine Arts Museum: Ibine Ela Acu by Jamilah Sabur


Before she left Orlando, Cornell Fine Arts Museum curator Amy Galpin organized a show by Miami artist Jamilah Sabur called Ibine Ela Acu/Water Sun Moon. It’s Sabur’s first solo show in a museum, but it’s unlikely to be her last. Sabur works in performance and multimedia installation, often incorporating video of herself performing ritualistic actions. In this show, the videos give the viewer the feeling of having trespassed on a secret rite, a hidden process by which Sabur physically unearths memory, transforming history into intention. The title, Ibine Ela Acu, is in the now-dead language of the Timucua, the extinct indigenous Northern Florida people, and this show uses Florida’s history of violence and colonialism, as well environmental erosion, pollution and …
