About Filthy Dreams

Filthy Dreams is a blog that analyzes culture through a queer lens and a touch of camp. It was awarded the 2016 Creative Capital|Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant.  Originally conceived of as a boozy confetti-filled New York nightclub with the same acts appearing again and again to rousing applause, the founders lowered their goals and expectations to create a blog. Founded due to a lack of a venue for both serious critical analysis of queer issues and theory, as well as a campy sense of humor, Filthy Dreams provides commentary and analysis using the same decadent, trashy, and thoroughly queer filter.  In short, we wake up every morning asking ourselves “What Would John Waters Do?” (WWJWD).
