We will sometimes have movies, discussions, workshops, art projects and more!

This month:

April 4th: -POPcorn discussion: Paris is Burning!
"This documentary focuses on drag queens living in New York City and their "house" culture, which provides a sense of community and support for the flamboyant and often socially shunned performers. Groups from each house compete in elaborate balls that take cues from the world of fashion. Also touching on issues of racism and poverty, the film features interviews with a number of renowned drag queens, including Willi Ninja, Pepper LaBeija and Dorian Corey."

Special Guest Speaker: Mother DeeDee Miza (Dena Stanley)
