About Allan Hunter...
Allan Hunter was a male women's studies major in the 1980s and 1990s at the State University of New York at Old Westbury and Stony Brook, and created a rich collection of feminist theory papers during his time in college. "Same Door, Different Closet: A Heterosexual Sissy's Coming-Out Party" was published in the journal FEMINISM and PSYCHOLOGY 2 (3) in 1992 and reprinted twice in subsequent anthologies. A second theory paper, "The Feminist Perspective in (and/or On) the Field of Sociology" was published in 2006 (READINGS IN FEMINIST THEORY, Ed. S. M. Channa, Cosmo Publications). AHunter3 is a deviant person with a peculiar sense of gender identity of the sort that is nowadays called "genderqueer". When asked to put it in plain English he says "I'm a girl, that's my gender. But I'm male, that's my sex. Neither one is wrong." His current work-in-progress is a memoir, THE STORY OF Q: A GENDERQUEER TALE. He is currently negotiating a contract with a publisher and hopes to be able to announce an official publication arrangement soon. Allan is increasingly active in local and regional organizations where he speaks to small groups about gender issues. He has addressed college women's studies groups, alternative-lifestyle social groups, and given talks at LGBT centers.

About Alice Klugherz...
Alice Klugherz has been part of the Downtown dance and performance scene since the 80’s. Her docu-whimsey (talk/move) work has been part of PS 122’s Avant-Garde-Arama, Dance Theatre Workshop’s FRESH TRACKS, LaMama Club, Wet and other NYC venues. She also appears in the work of others, most recently in Mark Dendy’s NEWYORKnewyork@Astor Place performed at Joe’s Pub. Last seen in Redhook “Haik Dreams” performing with a sound and visual installation by Paula Jeanine Bennett, she is a regular reader at Cornelia St Cafe, Big Irv’s and Stacy’s Salon.

About Eugene Hyon...
Originally born on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, my interest in photography began at age 9 while my father did commercial work with black & white film in a darkroom. During my undergraduate and graduate years, I studied music, art and western architectural design at Hunter College, City University of New York, and became captivated by creative influences brought by people as a result of global transmigration. Also at that time, I was interested in African and Balinese rhythms and beats from recordings and at world music concerts, felt the spiritual nature of Aboriginal and North American Native Art. All of which inspired me to travel the globe with my camera. As a New York photographer, I’m interested in capturing with my lens neighborhoods, artists in the act of performing, and the buildings/structures that people imbue with their spirits. Influences on my photography are Berenice Abbott, Mary Ellen Mark, Eugene Atget, Paul Strand, Alfred Stieglitz, Irving Penn and Andre Kertesz. I continue to exhibit my photographic work in the city, both as a solo artist and with other artists of different mediums. After retiring as a medical advertising agency copy editor in 2011, I started using more of my time writing poetry, some of which is based on existentialism and on my experiences traveling and hiking to far flung places. I have as a goal to publish my poetry and photography, both as separate and combined media to create poetic works and visual essays. New York City continues to be my home.
