Most of us in the LGBT community who fought so hard and so long for same-sex marriage never realized that once S.C.O.T.U.S. finally gave us the right to wed partners, what a legal minefield marriage could be once we took our rose-colored glasses off just for a brief moment. The prospect of finally being able to legalize our … Continue reading

Del Filardi : My Heron Song

On Friday after I finished interviewing 20-something-year-old filmmaker Alden Peters on his film Coming Out for a feature we will broadcast on PTV on National Coming Out Day, I jumped on my bike to center of P Town for my next interviewee who couldn’t have been more different.

87 year old local artist/sculptor Del Filardi latest, and probably last, Exhibition was opening at the Kobalt Gallery. Called ‘My Heron Song’  all the pieces in the show are about Filardi’s great passion ….the blue heron.

Filardi’s work is nothing less than stunning and her skill with a welding torch is incomparable. She combines found objects with the steel scraps that she has magically transformed into one great blue after another, each appearing ready to launch from a weathered perch or land amid willowy reeds. Her highly collectable work can be found in both private and public collections, and although this Show will be on view for another week, every single piece sold within minutes.

We had actually met briefly last year when she was with her other great passion  …. Harriet Rubin her partner for the past 47 years  … when they were at the launch of B Proud’s book First Comes Love : a  celebration of long-term relationships in the LGBTQ community, which naturally they were in.


Show runs until September 8th 2016

Filmed by Judy Rolfe for P.T.V.

When queerguru asked the terminally delightful BenDeLaCreme about his new Show ‘Cosmos’ now playing at The Crown & Anchor, Provincetown she described it as ‘It’s all about science, but stupider, and with more dick jokes.’  Actually DeLa said a great deal more about the Show, Seattle, being a burlesque star, and even about the time she was on TV with someone called RuPaul.

After this hilarious interview filmed for P.T.V. by Amy Davies we fully understood why the wonderful DeLa was once voted Miss Congeniality.
