The TOUCH REUNION was an epic night full of fierce looks, magical energy, hot sweaty dancing, and unrestrained techno.
This live set recorded at TOUCH by Two Dudes In Love kicks off with Renato Teroy‘s live vocal performance of “All You Do”, forthcoming on FWB Records. Then we dive in with a set of hard homo-techno for the children, including a section with vocals from queer poet and filmmaker James Broughton.

This Fall, the James Hormel Center invites you to celebrate the 100th birthday of gay Bay Area poet and avant-garde film maker James Broughton at a free exhibit exploring his poetic world at the Main Branch of the San Francisco Public Library.
From his involvement with the San Francisco Poetry Renaissance in the 1940s through to his gay love inspired poems of the 1990s, James Broughton's vision and voice was unique and slyly alluring. Fusing whimsy, paradox and an exhilarating use of the English language, James created masterpieces of poetics. His life's work was an attempt to discover the contradictory nature of his humanity and its roots; the result was an artistic life that inspired many. All these aspects of James Broughton's life and work are looked at in this exhibition along with a generous helping of his poetry.
Above: James Broughton shortly after winning a special prize at Cannes in the early 1950's.
Discover his many critically acclaimed books available in the Library's public collection and through James Broughton's Amazon.com page.
The new award-winning documentary Big Joy: the Adventures of James Broughton is now screening at film festivals around the world.

WHEN: October 13 to January 16, 20145
