Superheroes prove their Gayness at Re-bar
by James Whitely - SGN Staff Writer

Superheroes Are So Gay!
September 30
Re-bar


On September 30, The Producer's Collective, a local organization of Queer and allied artists, put on one of their biggest shows yet, Superheroes are So Gay! A Dynamite Queer Variety Show at Re-bar (1114 Howell St.) The variety show featured burlesque, drag, film, and live music and served as a fundraiser for Pinay sa Seattle, a local women's organization.

'We have a really, really amazing group of superheroes who are going to show you how Gay they are,' said Spike, the emcee, at the beginning of the show, to a packed house.

Highlights of the show included Last of the RedHot Mamas; a collaborative band created by poet and singer Amber Flame; a silent short film entitled Robin Hood Is So Gay by local filmmaker Broch Bender; Randy Andy, a drag King who utilized the art of boylesque onstage and made out with a girl in a penis costume; and of course, the headliner, Aleksa Manila, who performed a very unique number.

Suffice to say, I've seen 'the thrilla from Manila' do many things, but I'd never seen her tie someone up onstage, pour hot wax on them, and then lick it off.

Additionally, the beneficiaries of the show, Pinay sa Seattle, put on a burlesque act that included more glitter than I've ever seen in my life.

'It really felt so community-focused and fun,' said The Producer's Collective. 'This is exactly what we've been hoping for.'

The Producer's Collective strives to bring a collage of Queer art on stage from film, music, dance, drag, spoken word, bands, theater, burlesque, draglesque, and boylesque that comes from liberatory values. They want to create an artist and producer community that values social justice, camp, and diversity.

The Producer's Collective's next show, The Holy, Harrowing, Hellacious, Homo Halloween Show, will also be held at Re-bar on Thursday, October 28 at 8 p.m. You can look up 'Theproducerscollective Seattle' on Facebook for more information.
