UGLY (Black Queer Zoo)

The Bushwick Starrthe feath3r theory

 Part dance-theater and part pop-culture collage, Raja Feather Kelly is UGLY and this is the latest from the Warhol-obsessed; Black; Queer; Drama Queen of the feath3r theory and his response to the dearth of nuanced black queer subjectivity in the mainstream. Raja Feather Kelly says "I am an Ugly man. I am a queer of substance, color and depth, thoughts and expression- and I might even be said to possess magick. I am Ugly, understand, simply because you refuse to see me... "
