Bad at Sports Center starts off 2020 with nothing less than VELVET, the upcoming Guest Artist Gallery (GAG) exhibition at The Leather Archives and Museum (LAM). Artists Caleb Yono and Melissa Hespelt join us live in the studio along with LAM’s archivist Mel Leverich and curator, Vicente Ugartechea. Our hosts Brian and Dana learn about the expansive, community focused kink and fetish collection at the Archive, as well as how Yono and Hespelt and have navigated their glamorous gender queer collaboration to produce the first GAG of the year. VELVET opens January 24th from 6pm-9PM at the Leather Archives and Museum (21+ only). More information at https://leatherarchives.org/.
