[LGBTQ] The Rocky Horror Picture Show Movie Archive of 13 Movie Lobby Cards and Original Photographs. 20th Century Fox Film Corp., 1975. Includes 6 black and white vintage lobby cards that measure 10" x 8", 2 11" x 14" color lobby cards, and 5 black and white original photographs which measure 10" x 8". The Rocky Horror Picture show was one of the first musicals to convey characters with fluid sexualities. As such, it has become beloved within LGBTQ+ communities and is celebrated for its "subversive portrayal of sexuality and gender".
It was created as a "spoof" of B-horror movies, but also a "spoof" of LGBTQ+ stereotypes. For instance, Frank N. Furter, played by Tim Curry, is a wild, hypersexual cross-dresser, Brad and Janet are “victims” of Frank N. Furter and the other flamboyant personalities in his castle, and all the castle residents are quite literally from another planet named "Transsexual". But by leaning all the way into these stereotypes, they take on a consciousness that creates an element of subversion. The result of this is a massive queer following that feels seen and heard in a real way despite the outlandish nature of the film. Three black and white lobby cards capture Tim Curry in bold makeup and flamboyant attire, and an extravagant pearl necklace. One lobby card captures him mid performance, as he sings "Sweet Transvestite" alongside Columbia, Magenta, and Riff Raff. There's another There are several photographs of characters including Columbia, Riff Raff's groupie, Riff Raff alongside a coffin, and a portrait of Magenta in expressive makeup. One colorful lobby card captures Magenta and Riff Raff in futuristic attire, while the other is a group shot of several performers at the "Annual Transylvanian Convention". The Rocky Horror Picture Show was one of the first musicals to convey characters with fluid sexualities. As a result, it has become beloved within LGBTQ+ communities and is celebrated for its "subversive portrayal of sexuality and gender". All lobby cards and photographs bold and bright, this archive is in very good condition.
