Lick my Mayakovsky

Ranging from Marilyn Monroe to Darth Vader, Vladimir Mayakovsky to Donald Duck, the project is an experiment in pairing flavours to personality and context in a playful, tongue-in-cheek fashion.

..and gay men are bloodthirsty animals!

Once upon a time, not so long ago, in the land of  liberty and opportunity...

Boys Beware“, a chronicle of  the various ways gay men of 1961 stalked their young prey, commissioned by the  Inglewood Police Department, California (!)…  a film shown  to all 60’s pubescent boys in classrooms across USA.

This  ”educational film”  warns the little American boys  that  the homosexual can be anywhere, and he just isn’t happy unless he’s sodomizing a naive teenager. Boys Bewere was also to  help  those young, tender, blond boys recognize the dangers of the mentally ill homosexual, and points out some warning signs. (full film here)

Girls Bewere version was available too..
