The Boy Mechanic San Diego by Kaucyila Brooke

Video (20:37): The Boy Mechanic San Diego, video installation by Kaucyila Brooke. This video documents one part of a multiple city historical archive about the history of lesbian bars.

The Boy Mechanic by Kaucyila Brook is an ongoing project [1996-ongoing] that will document the history of lesbian bars in cities and towns across the United States and Europe. Loss of architecture and the frailties of public memories have often been the motivation for photographic documentation of changing urban spaces; focusing on the lesbian bar reveals how sexuality and sexual identity inform larger narratives about public identity and social space.
