In “Soft with a Blowtorch” AK Jenkins opens up understanding of masculinity and takes them further, looking beyond the narrow constrictions of gender, in an artful play with fantasy and imagination.

“Soft with a Blowtorch” seeks to expand the everyday archive of Black butch life and masculinity archetypes. Merging pop culture, sport, Black and queer iconography, the show puts queer masculinity at the center — questioning too, the kinds of performative ways the binary even seeps into LGBTQIA+ life, while refusing to give it ultimate prescriptive power. — “Soft with a Blowtorch” | AK Jenkins
