Reel Queer Film Series: Framing Lesbian Fashion

The Reel Queer Film Series at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center presents free screenings of LGBTQ-themed independent, arthouse, and documentary films! Talkbacks follow each screening. All of the films we screen are not rated higher than PG-13.

The film screenings are held in person and virtually on the 2nd Thursdays at 6 p.m. Join us September 8th at 6pm to watch and discuss Framing Lesbian Fashion with guest speaker Jaliliah Williams (she/her) who is aLehigh Valley based Lesbian Researcher.

The 1992 documentary Framing Lesbian Fashion looks at the evolution of lesbian attire and identity—butch/femme, flannel, androgyny, cross-dressing and drag, queer fluorescent, S/M and leather, lipstick, and more. Featuring interviews with Sally Gearhart, JoAnn Loulan, Arlene Stein, Kitty Tsui, and others, Framing Lesbian Fashion incorporates archival photos and personal stories to document the sociology and history of lesbian fashion.

The Reel Queer Film Series is supported in part by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency, through the Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts (PPA), its regional arts funding Partnership. State government funding comes through an annual appropriation by Pennsylvania’s General Assembly and from the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency. PPA is administered in this region by PPA Partner Lehigh Valley Community Foundation.

Funding has been provided in part by PA Humanities and the National Endowment for the Humanities as part of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.
