Tonight's queer artist feature is a moving documentary short featuring Paul Richmond created by Wild Iris Video.
The Mentor and the Artist
By Wild Iris Video
An artist mentors a young boy who is bullied badly, who himself becomes an accomplished artist. Decades later, the two have developed a deep friendship. They build on their shared experiences to create the You Will Rise Project, which seeks to help students who are bullied develop skills of self-expression by making art.
Step into the weird and wonderful world of artist Paul Richmond, where anything could go down -- even a pin-up boys' pants! We're all a little high on paint fumes around here, so grab a brush and join the painting party!
