Crude Oil Wrestling

Men rolling around in petroleum (actually canola oil). That’s just about the gayest awareness campaign for the Gulf oil spill. But wait, there’s more.

The Faetopia Festival invades the former Tower Records June 20-26. The groovy Playa Joy folks bring Eco Homo, a fun-filled week of environmental arts, awareness and activist events.

Sunday, June 20, the must-see event was “Crude Oil Wrestling,” a fundraiser for Gulf oil spill relief, with hours of real live (but fake oil) grappling, from 2pm-6pm. Those who got there oily enjoyed the matches in the street in front of the space.

If you missed that there’s more. Partake of environmental education workshops, film screenings, photo sessions and exhibits, and drag shows, including a multimedia recreation of the wild film Aliens Cut My Hair, with Suppositori Spelling, Veronic Klaus, Elvis Herselvis and more.

$20-$45. Check the website for times and tickets. Thru June 26. 2278 Market St. at Noe.
