Fresh Meat in the Gallery is a groundbreaking, rule-breaking annual exhibition of transgender and gender variant artists. The first and only exhibition of its kind in the nation, Fresh Meat in the Gallery celebrates its Fifth Anniversary this year!

This year's exhibition, Riots and Revelations, asks: How have riots and revelations been part of our histories and how they will shape the future? How do we find peace in a time of war on our bodies and communities? How are communities around the world rising up? What new ways of living are being revealed for the future? Transgender and gender variant artists from across the nation and around the world respond with innovative, startling, moving new work.

Riots and Revelations features work by: Jillian Soto, Danyol, Maya Christina Gonzalez, Miss Day, Noelle Walker, Alex Smith, Aryn Zev, Gariel R. Felix, Henry Schneiderman, R. Sandler, Rae Strozzo, Sela Davis, Simon Croft, Stacey Wexler, Truc Thanh Nguyen, Valerie Amedee, Woo, Miles Conrad and Wolf Israel. Learnmore about these artists.

Fresh Meat in the Gallery V: Riots and Revelations is presented in conjunction with the 2008 Fresh Meat Festival, an annual festival of transgender and queer performance (see listing above). Riots and Revelations is presented by Fresh Meat Productions, the Queer Cultural Center and the San Francisco LGBT Community Center, and is a featured part of the National Queer Arts Festival.

The Living Room Collective proudly presents its third annual SEXICON: the art and language of erotica, an erotic art party for the masses. SEXICON brings together the vanilla and the kink, the boys and the girls, the straight & narrow, the queer & wide-open and everyone in between! In its third incarnation, SEXICON has bridged the Bay for the first time, and will open in the lovely and lusty San Francisco. Teaming up with Stormy Leather, The Living Room Collective has compiled a wide array of erotica to fill the South of Market mixed gender leather and kink venue in a way that reflects not only Stormy's clientele, but the broad spectrum of sexuality that exists in the bay area. Unlike other art exhibitions, the Living Room strives to create a participatory and interactive art show, and invites the public to dress sexy, however that is interpreted by the individual.
