Buffon’s project responds to our political moment through depictions of gay art and culture; the project began in 2015 with a model of Stonewall Inn. Buffon documents over 30 locations, both historic and contemporary, that capture gay life in New York and beyond—from poetic invocations of Pfaff’s beer cellar (Whitman’s favorite bar), to an HIV testing van in Cleveland, to the High Line’s monumental installation of Zoe Leonard’s poem “I want a President,” Buffon portrays gay history, identifying community as the site of resilience and poetic articulation as an urgent voice of resistance.
