Gay and Light

Peter Kingstone

2010, 08:00 minutes, colour, English


Gay and Light is an interview of my parents in their home about Mr. Humphries, a character in the British comedy Are You Being Served? As a family we watched Are You Being Served? The main question I ask during the interview is if they worried that their impressionable son watched a gay character? Watching my parents describe their reaction to the show, their son, and the world outside the family leaves the audience asking questions about the artist and the nature of being queer.

Gay and Light is also one of the videos in the installation Sissies and Psychopaths.
