A simple declaration of peace and reality shouldn’t ignite a movement, but when it does, it’s good to have a photographer around.
And so it was, in April of 1966, when three patrons of NYC’s Julius’ bar stated: “We are homosexuals. We are orderly, we intend to remain orderly, and we are asking for service." Today, the photo of this moment hangs on the wall of Julius’. Today, gay bars in NYC are not only legal, but plentiful, thanks to the artistic tradition of telling the truth about a time and a place.
Singer-songwriter Seán Barna, a viscerally outspoken queer artist and performer, is embedded in this tradition. With his second LP and Kill Rock Stars debut, Seán invites you to An Evening at Macri Park—a character study of the dimly-lit Brooklyn queer bar, Macri Park, and the creatures who thrive within its walls.
