Item consists of a video compilation portfolio by Mark Berabioff with four individual works, including "Crossing the 49th." Crossing the 49th is a narrative fantasy dealing with the notion that the total population of Canada could be swapped with the entire American gay population. The tape uses several methods to address this fantasy: blue American and red Canadian lips share ideas; keyed text in the guise of airport codes and clauses float across the screen; sections of slow-moving, bleached-out shots help create a dreamy effect that runs the entire length of the tape.
Item consists of a compilation tape titled "California Connections" that has video recordings by Wendy Geller, Suzie Silver and Paul Best. "Gays for Better Bodies" challenges the sexual stereotyping of straight and gay men by conflating their domains in this advertisement for a gymnasium for gay men. "Gay Tabs Straight Tabs" uses a corporate advertising format to destabilize heterosexuality among men.
Item is an audio recording that includes contributions from Jane Morrigan, Joanne, Jennifer, Lynne Wanyeki, Mary Ann Mancini, Darlene, Margot Parker, Erin, Gail, Susan, Thorn Davies, and others who wished to be anonymous. The tape was created by Catherine Hughes and submitted for a Centre for Art Tapes scholarship.
