MIX, the New York Gay and Lesbian Experimental Film Festival, opened its 19th season with full fanfare at the Delancey on New York’s Lower East Side. Outrageously-dressed guys and dolls (and many who blurred the line) packed in to groove to electroclash music and to cheer on some of the city’s most notorious gay / lesbian / bisexual / transgender performance artists. Featured acts included vampy cabaret duo Joseph Keckler and Erin Markey, spastic and skimpy dance troupe Daisy Spurs and the Fuckettes, and the electric-ukulele-playing drag queen poet(ess) Taylor Mac.
