Goodbye, dear Edwige, butch elegance, punk legend.
Here's 2 young people from Malawi who went to jail yesterday for up to 14 years in a "hard labour work camp" convicted of "unnatural acts and gross indecency." One is 20 yrs old, the other is 26. That one on the right especially looks like some kind of angel. Across Africa it seems the right wing are seeking to kill, jail and discriminate gay and transgender people. They are calling for the execution of gay people in Uganda.

Earlier this year, I visited the Kazuo Ohno dance studio in Yokohama, established some 60 years ago, and collaborated with Yoshito on a performance celebrating his father's life and work. At Ohno's bedside, I witnessed a surprising vitality and sensed an almost invisible movement reverberating through his elderly frame. As he lay there, his window open to reveal a cherry blossom tree and a view of Mount Fuji, I realised that Ohno had developed a creative process that was a byproduct of his spiritual practice. Yoshito told me during my visit to the studio that they aspired to total freedom in their dance, and that it emerged from a place of universal love.

Antony performed 2 sold out symphony concerts at the Sydney Opera House with Rob Moose conducting, with guests William Basinski and Johanna Constantine. After stoping in Perth to do 2 more shows, Antony heads to Tokyo, Japan with Billy, Johanna and Rob to do a pair of concerts with Yoshito Ohno and the Kazuo Ohno Dance Studio. An image of Kazuo Ohno was featured on the cover of The Crying Light and so there couldn't be a more perfect way to commemorate the final dates of the Crying Light tour. Excerpts from the film "Mr. Ohno's Book of the Dead" will also be screened. It's an honor to be on stage with Yoshito Ohno for our first concerts in Japan.
HAMMER PROJECTS: ANTONY January 22nd-May 13th
The right wing in the US has done the same thing; the Republicans often glide into office on a manipulative platform rallying against gays and reproductive rights, only then to turn their influence to serve the corporations once they are in power.
This is a classic way that right wing parties appeal to the working class, enacting fake morality sweeps across their countries. The fundamentalist Islamics recently did it in Baghdad, executing scores of young gay people in the last year to purge the "American influence" and win the favor of naive constituents. And the rights of women are always just a step behind the rights of faggots. The way a culture embraces its gay and transgender children is one of the greatest litmus tests of the psychic and spiritual health of that society.
