SWALLOW is a conceptual queer club which took residence at Murmurs, Los Angeles for the duration of November, 2019.
SWALLOW intends to equip Los Angeles with a reliable and accessible center for creativity and nightlife. Designed by and with the community, the architecture of SWALLOW mimics the contraction and expansion of control and freedom.

She fell to the ground in the middle of a fast food restaurant. Her parents slumped over her, cooing in distress. She was frozen in syncope. Her eyes stayed open with a look of pure terror. Minutes passed and she did not move. I believe she could hear, though perhaps sound was deadened by her mental state. I believe she could see, but how one sees in a dream.
I watched as others gathered, fixed on her petrified face. Each person looking to the next and hoping that someone could help. Nobody knew what to do. She remained still as I walked out the door.
