"I feel the way bank robbers must feel just before they go out on that last big job that ends up getting them all killed.
That is to say, optimistic.
"

Lockpick Pornography is a genderqueer adventure story adapted from the novella of the same name, a darkly humorous exploration into queer political vigilantism and the way that aggression and anger can both galvanise and destroy us. The unnamed narrator and his friends decide to take radical action against the right wing politicians out for queer blood by creating gay-centric books for children and leaving them in homes across the country. They go too far, though, when they kidnap a "family values" politician's young son and depart through the suburban jungle on foot, looking for mayhem.

Lockpick Pornography explores the effects of prejudice and the ramifications of violence and trauma with Comeau's signature mix of unhinged humour and unexpected tenderness.

La Mama Courthouse is fully accessible for all patrons. Please phone La Mama office if you have any queries: 03 9347 6948.
