Compulsive Acts: Essays, Interviews, Reflections On The Works of Sky Gilbert has been recently published and the Hardworkin’ Homosexuals want to celebrate with a party and performances! Guernica Editions and the Hardworkin’ Homosexuals have teamed up to celebrate the launch of this most important, very timely, super sexy and hyper provocative book that features writings, essays, interviews, reviews and a song lyric inspired by the one and only Sky Gilbert.

Compulsive Acts editor David Bateman says, “Come out and celebrate the launch of the first anthology of essays devoted to the work of renowned playwright, filmmaker, novelist, and poet Sky Gilbert.

Compulsive Acts, published by Guernica Editions, interrogates and celebrates a significant force in queer theatre through a rigorous historical and aesthetic response to the prolific output of one of Canada’s most daring and acclaimed queer artists.” Sky Gilbert muses, “I don’t know what to say. It’s a beautiful book. I hope it’s not much ado about nothing; it’s definitely much ado about me!”

Confirmed performers include: Moynan King, Dirk Gindt, Bob Wiseman, Ellen Ray Hennessey, Scott McCord, David Bateman, Edward Roy, Katie Sly, Donnarama, Daniel MacIvor and Gavin Crawford. Video artist Ian Jarvis will premiere a short new video to celebrate the launch of this  exciting new book. Also, The Sky Gilbert Players will be staging their  premiere production at this grand occasion.

Keith Cole will host the evening and DJ Lushus Lix will take party revelers through the night in fine style.
