Randy Roberts Potts' Deeply (and Intentionally) Boring Gay Agenda: VIDEO


Beef stew, jigsaw puzzles, vacuuming, and sofa cuddling are among the things that make up The Gay Agenda, a performance art piece from Randy Roberts Potts, the gay grandson of famed televangelist Oral Roberts.

GayagendaPotts writes: "To present a clear image of what gay domesticity looks like, we will set up a 'home' in each town inside a borrowed storefront. Two men or two women will inhabit the space as a couple for several days at a time, the occupants performing routine tasks: vacuuming the carpet, making coffee, reading the paper, playing cards with friends, ordering pizza, watching TV, etc.. No intimacy beyond what might be acceptable for any heterosexual couple in public will be presented; ie, it will be limited to casual contact -- hand-holding, an arm around each other, a casual kiss hello/goodbye, etc. THE GAY AGENDA AS CONCEIVED SHOULD BE INCREDIBLY BORING TO WATCH."

The Gay Agenda is coming to Oklahoma City on February 10.

  3. i totally live in dallas and real close to the staging of The Gay Agenda...AND I MISSED VISITING THEM...
    because i was living my own (incredibly boring) gay agenda. i guess that's part of the point...

    I did get a giggle out of the fact that they did this in front of the opera house...

    unfortunately a few blocks away is the big ole First Baptist with Dallas's biggest sweet-as-peaches bigot, Pastor Robert Jeffress

  5. Finally! after all these years, there's proof of a "miracle" from the Oral Roberts Ministries.

  6. Nice job these guys did on a great concept. If you added two pre-teens and two dogs, it could be our house on any given night. Turns out our "gay agenda" isn't much of an agenda after all.

  7. How dare these cis-gendered, privilege-holders celebrate their conventional relationship. Clearly in need of a glitter-bomb there, to shake them from their racist, able-ist, ageist hetero-normative practices.

  9. Kick-ass. Maybe there should be one with a transexual lady and her would-be legal husband, too? Why are the trans folk opposed to marriage?? Have they just been knocked down a few too many times. Ain't right.

    Great show. Love love love. Thank you!!!

  11. I love this. I hope that he is able to find real couples willing to participate in each city, that will only drive the message home more.
