LGBT History Month Screening: Paris is Burning
As part of our LGBT+ History Month activity we will be screening Paris is Burning.
Chronicling the world of fierce performance and competition at Harlem drag balls during the 1980’s, this documentary is a ground breaking exploration of race, class, gender and sexuality.
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.
