A certain large-circulation glossy that shall go unnamed

May 17th, 2006 | Uncategorized

I had to take down a post about a magazine photo shoot (for Fun Home, my new book) that I did in NYC last week because the magazine doesn’t want anyone to know about it beforehand. Suffice it to say it was an odd experience indeed. Tom Cruise is on this publication’s latest cover.

Now that I’m a big celebrity, though, you should go bid on a disposable camera I shot for the Naked Eye Celebrity Camera Benefit, a fundraiser for MIX NYC, the NY Lesbian & Gay Experimental Film Festival. They asked a whole mess of people, from Laurie Anderson to Alan Cumming to Diane DiMassa to shoot a disposable camera with anything they wanted. Now they’re auctioning them off on eBay. But frankly, their website kinda sucks. You can’t link to the eBay auctions from it for some reason.
But I found my camera on eBay, here’s the link to it. I did a first-person shooter account of my day. Watch me pick up the disposable camera at the post office, drive into town, go to therapy, run errands, and walk my neighbor’s dog. Scintillating stuff. But I can’t guarantee anything turned out, so don’t blame me if you buy it and it’s just a bunch of blurry photos.
