Q: What is Gooey on The Inside?
A: Gooey on the Inside was an underground art, music and event organisation curated by Kati Cubby and Holly Fluxx that successfully hosted over 40 separate events (from 2007-2010).

Our events included art exhibitions, live music performances, dance parties, artist markets, workshops, skill shares, contemporary dance performances, writings, theatre performances, fundraisers, live video streams, panel discussions and fashion shows, as well as a combination of many of these simultaneously.

Highlights of Gooey On the Inside include:
- A live music and art event in Berlin, Germany (The Slumber Party)
- A live music and art event in Santiago, Chile (La Cunt Rave)
- A well received music showcase compilation cd (Hit Machine XXIVIVX), featuring Gooey on the Inside artists from Indonesia, Japan, Chile, USA, UK, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, and across Australia.
- An invitation to speak at This Is Not Art Festival 2008 on "How to start a scene from scratch"
- Producing our own specialist radio programs for 3CR and SYN fm
- Over 40 successful dynamic and diverse events spanning the course of three years
- Featured in an interview and full page spread in UK magazine "Super Super" as well as local Australian zines

Focusing on young people who identified as women, trans, queer, and people of colour, we strived to create space, agency, audience, support and a thriving, dynamic environment and build a community for our artists.

We have now moved on to other projects, but can be contacted via email:

TOP 5 QUEER LOVE SONGS

well, since its that time of the year here's my top five list of queer love songs!!!:


1. When You Were Mine - Cyndi Lauper version (1985)
A cover of the Prince song, this version sung is by Lauper without changing the gender pronouns in the lyrics, which makes her version totally queer, because she is talking about her ex-lover now having a boy lover, which is not hetero.!:)

(in this version Cyndi enters stage via a big vaginal flap!!)

2. I Kissed A Girl - Jill Sobule (1995)
this one's a bit busted... (harmonica, anyone?!)

but its totally non-hetero, its the story of Jill talking to her friend about their boyfriends, 'He's such a hairy behemoth,
dumb as a box of hammers ' the friend says to Jill, and Jill responds that her lover 'Larry' has asked her to marry but she's waiting for a better offer. The two women laugh, drink, smoke, then make out.Jill acknowledges that while kissing another girl may not be a revolutionary action, it has made her happy:

I kissed a girl
Her lips were sweet.
She was just like kissing me
Kissed a girl won't change the world
But I'm so glad,
I kissed a girl!

this song also has quite an interesting hook, 'they can have their diamonds and we'll have our pearls', in which 'pearl' could definitely be interpreted as an allusion to the clit.

this song is heaps gayer than Katy Perry's I Kissed a Girl, featuring the lines, '
I kissed a girl just to try it, I hope my boyfriend don't mind it', and 'it felt so wrong, it felt so right, don't mean i'm in love tonight' which is kinda radical love but still privledges tha het'.


3. Strip For Me - Gravy Train (2007)

Ok, Gravy Train are hella gay. Obviously. Strip For Me, featuring the line 'You may be the gayest fuckin' guy in town but I like dick and you have a weiner.' Gravy Train have this whole schtick, like, its all about really hott gay guys that straight girls are really resentful of, ever heard the song 'you made me gay'?) but this song is just too good to skip, a queer HIT!


this video is a fan art. i love it because i love drag kings and the fact that a lot of drag kings perform in really similar ways. also i wish that was my bedroom, this version ends with drag king saying, 'oh my god, that got my glasses foggy...'

4. They're Not Gonna Get Us - t.A.T.u (2002)
Everyone knows that Tatu were a totally manufactured teen lesbian duo, created in 1998 by a businessman who had realized that the most searched terms for porn were 'teen' and 'lesbian', and that he could make some money. On this premise, he brought Lena and Yulia together (then both 13 years old) and they recorded 200km in the wrong lane which spawned the hit singles All The Things She Said and the Smiths cover How Soon Is Now.
They're Not Gonna Get Us is in the distinctive t.A.T.u style of overdriven almost nu-metal techno and boasts such teen angsty lyrics as, ' My love for you, always forever, Just you and me, all else is nothing, Not going back, not going back there, They don't understand, They don't understand us '(fades to epic echo....)


this video clip features Lena and Yulia hangin tough on the back of a huge truck plummetting through the snow without a driver!! that's HOTTTTT! note the smashed glass effect when they are singing as the video was only filmed with the girls singing in Russian.

5. Gold Star - O.T.T. (2008)

This song is hot. Not only is it a love song, and a queer pride song, but its also a banging dance track. Hailing from Auckland, New Zealand, Oscar Nutt and the Trash are total party people who make homo electro and wear excellent costumes. Gold Star is the idea of being totalz gay, 'i'm a gold star, a puritan gay, i wouldn't go straight, even for one day' is the chorus and the loooove affection comes in a sing, songy, almost lullaby, '
Gold star,
Shining bright,
will you be my baby tonight?
Gold star,
I've got so much pride,
too much loving that I just can't hide.'
if you weren't a gold star before listening to this track, you'll probably be wishing you were by the end *sigh*

this is O.T.T.'s myspace, Gold Star is the first track on their player.!

so what's your favourite queer love song? PEACE OUT!
