The Most Shocking Picture You'll See Tonight in LA
Following in the controversial footsteps of the Golden Gals Gone Wild, comes a new collection of art into the World of Wonder's Storefront Gallery. Today brings us the opening of Austin Young's Celebritism.
As you pass by the W.O.W. gallery on Hollywood Blvd. near Skooby's, you will see large photographs of what appear to be larger-than-life Marilyn Monroe's trying to get out from inside.
But one photo that will be inside the show can pretty easily be guaranteed to be the most shocking photograph in town tonight, it's a compelling black-and-white portrait of porn star Buck Angel, aka the "the man with the pussy".
Join us after the jump for a large version of that photo, the poster for the show, and more info about the opening...
Celebritism will be at the World of Wonder Storefront Gallery from tonight through the 20th at 6650 Hollywood Blvd.
Tonight's opening is just $5, and not only will you get to see photos by Austin Young, but there will be performances by Squeaky Blonde, Selene Luna, Nadya Ginsburg, Katie Newcomb, Lenora Claire, Fade-Dra, Zackary Drucker and Plastic Martyr.
Now here's that picture we were trying to warn you about:
Yep that's Buck Angel, "the man with a pussy", and this portrait and others will also be at the show tonight. So get ready/
