@voguemagazine covering BOFFO and the lesbian Fire Island artist community with "Beach Babes" by @petrafcollins and @alexhawgood read more at: http://www.vogue.com/projects/13532955/pride-2017-lesbian-minority-fire-island-community/ "The connection between queer women and Fire Island extends back to the 1950s, when a new “lesbian minority” began flocking to the Grove to experience what the American cultural anthropologist Esther Newton called “the longed-for freedom of association and public enjoyment of their sexual preference.” Today’s new scene of curators, fashion designers, musicians, and writers is partially due to the Boffo Fire Island Art Camp, an annual summer art residency program founded by Faris Al-Shathir.

Since its inception in 2012, Boffo has hosted a wide range of creative types across the LGBTQIA spectrum, including Hardy, multihyphenate photographer A.L. Steiner, the painter Schandra Singh, and transgender performance artist Wu Tsang. “The program started largely as a reaction to this idea that the island was feeling primarily like just a white gay male community,” Al-Shathir said. “Fire Island is one of the only communities in the world that identifies so specifically with being LGBTQ, so how can we better represent that larger community?” “One of the reasons you might be seeing more women,” he added, “is because Boffo is supporting more women.” Hardy, who recently started her 16-week bayside rental share on the island, agreed. “It’s true that Boffo brought gender diversity and new queer bodies to the Pines,” she said. @k8hardball @h_e_r_s_t_o_r_y @wu_tsang @jd_samson @evilflower #alsteiner

@mattpwolf in residency at BOFFO on Fire Island. He is doing audio interviews but not releasing them for 20 years. What will they be by then? What will they tell of this time? DM Matt if you'd like to be part of this historical record. #fireislandpines
