I attended the first year anniversary celebration of Fluxx Studio & Gallery last night, at 414 E. 9th St. (just east of 4th Avenue), and was entertained by lively & talented performances by Boys R Us and Salsa Saucedo. Fluxx advertises themselves as Tucson’s “first and only queer art space.”
Fluxx Studio & Gallery is a non-profit community art space working to provide thoughtful, engaging and socially uplifting events. Fluxx is a multi-function space designed to host exhibitions, performance art, movie screenings, workshops and special events.
It is important to encourage open dialogue and communication about queer culture in order to bridge gaps of understanding, acceptance and change.
Heralding themselves as a “gender performance troupe” Boys R Us is a sparklingly unique gem of Tucson arts and culture. Not only do they blur the lines between traditionally accepted gender roles, but also they whimsically blend genres and media to produce a show that literally explodes off the stage with originality and edgy social consciousness.
Fluxx also offers rental space for classes in yoga, salsa dancing, hip hop dancing, and hosts LGBT films, and Odyssey Storytelling, produced by fellow blogger Penelope Starr “Telling Stories”, who was present at last evening’s anniversary celebration.
