It is now possible to make a donation to support me and my photography through Paypal.
Your donations help me do very basic things like, pay the rent and keep the electricity on, not to mention keeping this web page alive.  These are difficult times and your support makes a tremendous difference.  No donation is too small.

Since 1981, I have shown my own work and the work of other sexual and underground artists in my studio.  I continue to do so because of the outright discrimination in the mainstream art world where people who are different are often marginalized and made invisible.

I don't do this work to make money.  Don't misunderstand me.  I would be happy to make money from the work I do.  But the work I choose to create and exhibit is work that deserves to be seen whether or not money can be made from selling it.  Not at some future point when the world is ready for it.  But now.  The weight of history is on our side.  There is no time to wait.

This work can't exist without your support.  Any donation is a help, especially in these dark times.  You can make a safe and secure donation through Paypal with a credit card, even if you don't have a Paypal account.
