    Reel Queer Film Series presents Outrun

    RQFS_Outrun.png

    The Reel Queer Film Series at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center presents a free screening on Outrun on May 9th at 6:30pm. A talkback and dessert reception will follow.

    As leader of the world’s only LGBT political party, Bemz Benedito dreams of being the first transgender woman in the Philippine Congress. But in a predominantly Catholic nation, rallying for LGBT representation in the halls of Congress is not an easy feat. Bemz and her eclectic team of queer political warriors must rethink traditional campaign strategies to amass support from unlikely places. Taking their equality campaign to small-town hair salons and regional beauty pageants, the activists mobilize working-class trans hairdressers and beauty queens to join the fight against their main political opponent, a homophobic evangelical preacher, and prove to the Filipino electorate that it’s time to take the rights of LGBT people seriously. But as outsiders trying to get inside the system, will they have to compromise their political ideals in order to win? Culminating on election day, OUT RUN provides a unique look into the challenges LGBT people face as they transition into the mainstream and fight for dignity, legitimacy, and acceptance across the globe.

    Stonewall Era Art, the rise of Queer Visibility, and Basquiat 

    In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots we’ll be looking at the artists and 
    societal movements that surrounded and empowered LGBTQ people leading up to and after the 
    Stonewall Rebellion in 1969, when everything about the Queer community began to change. Queer artists of that period were part of the second wave of Abstract Expressionism, Pop, Op, Photo Realism, and the beginnings of Performance Art. Their decisions to be out and proud fueled and were fueled by the Civil Rights, the Anti-War, and Women’s Movements, the Sexual Revolution, and the Stonewall Rebellion. This class will weave it all together and there will be great themed snacks.
