Prop 8: Envisioning the End of Hypocrisy and Division is the premiere of the Hot Lezbos in Action Video Blog. The Hot Lezbos in Action Video Blog reappropriates the mass commodification, degradation, and objectification of the lesbian experience not only in the porn industry but in mainstream society in general. The Hot Lezbos in Action Video Blog seeks to bring together writers and video artists from the lesbian community, the queer community of color, and our diverse coalition of allies who are willing to push the envelope with us in our quest for social justice for all. The premiere episode was written and produced by SF-based artists Gigi Otalvaro-Hormillosa and Heather Cox Carducci of the (a)eromestiza project. Otalvaro-Hormillosa wrote this piece in response to the various posts and blogs regarding the passage of Proposition 8 (California’s gay marriage ban) and the unfortunate consequence of heightened divisions between the queer community and communities of color.
