‘Cinewhores’ film series at ATA
Whore Magazine and Artists Television Access are presenting a monthly series of films about prostitutes, and Monday night at 7:30 is the amazing 1969 epic Midnight Cowboy — in which a handsome asswipe from Texas comes to New York to play the gigolo, and winds up as the pet of a tubercular street punk played by Dustin Hoffman (“I’m walkin’ here! I’m walkin’ here!!”).
The event will include a discussion of the film by Whore Magazine’s editor Ginger Murray and Metblogs’ own Melissa Gira, who is also development coordinator of St. James Infirmary, the local sex worker care and education organization.
Next in the series, on Dec. 17: Luis Buñuel’s sublime Belle du Jour.
