Re: "Todd Haynes Quarantined with His Editor to Finish His Queer Velvet Underground Doc"

Right, Sister Ray. In the same way as that song it’s not spelled out but I take Lady Godiva as a pretty obvious drag persona just based on the name. And there is a history of subjecting queer or otherwise different people to harsh psychiatric punishments. Lonesome Cowboy feels campy based on the voc...

Re: "Todd Haynes Quarantined with His Editor to Finish His Queer Velvet Underground Doc"

It's weird, but despite the Factory connection, I never get any real sense of queerness from the VU or their music. So I wonder what is in store from this documentary. Really? There's Candy Says about the gender dysphoria of Candy Darling, Lady Godiva's Operation about a transvestite/transexual lob...

Re: Magic and Loss is about Rachel, isn't it?

Re: Magic and Loss is about Rachel, isn't it?

I totally agree they are about Rachel, I've put this theory forward on various forums myself.

Re: NYPL Archive
