Kiss and Tell: Coming out to mom

by Kathleen Oliver

Kinesis, Nov. 1992, pp. 14, 18

Vancouver-based lesbian art collective Kiss and Tell includes Persimmon Blackridge, Lizard Jones and Susan Stewart. Their most recent performance at the Vancouver East Cultural Centre was titled True Inversions, and addressed issues surrounding "lesbian sexual expression". The work was a multimedia performance, which also included video, slides and music. The video component focused on two couples - a real pair and a "for camera" pair - and questioned which looked more genuine. The video also questioned censorship our the current "politically-correct" atmosphere.
