Documenting the Bay Area's multicultural and sexually diverse
political and artistic communities, THE COLLECTED WORK OF SCARLOT
HARLOT explores the Bay Area's historic cultural and artistic
underground from an irreverent and intimate point of view. In
a time when mainstream media has become a mouthpiece for corporate
interests in America, Scarlot Harlot provides a fresh, irreverent
perspective. Challenging conventions of sexuality, aesthetics,
technology and the prevailing social system, Leigh has been a
pioneer in the development of television as a tool for activism
and social change. Three time American Film Institute award winner,
Leigh is a recipient of grants from the Film Arts Foundation,
San Francisco, the Lyn Blumenthal Memorial Fund (Chicago) and
Art Matters (New York) in addition to numerous screenings and
awards in the U.S. and around the world.
She has appeared on THE DONAHUE SHOW, NIGHTLINE, GERALDO, ACCESS
AMERICA, and on THE LATE SHOW with Arsenio Hall (and on numerous
even sleazier shows). Ten chapters of her writing appears in SEX
WORK, published by Cleis Press. Originally from New York, Leigh
currently resides in The Bay Area. As a performance artist, Scarlot
Harlot appears at San Francisco clubs and theaters.
