Queer Movie Night

Location: Young Queer Alliance, Rose-Hill

Info: Every May 17, the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOBIT) is a worldwide celebration of sexual and gender diversities.
This year’s theme is “No one left behind: equality, freedom and justice for all.”
In this context, the Young Queer Alliance is hosting a Queer Movie Night, airing the 1hr 45 mins acclaimed documentary “The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson”. Marsha P. Johnson was one of the icons of the gay rights movement in the 1960s, the self-described “street queen” of NY’s gay ghetto, and founded the Transvestites Action Revolutionaries with fellow luminary Sylvia Rivera. When Johnson’s body was found in the Hudson River in 1992, police called it a suicide and didn’t investigate. In David France’s new documentary, trans activist Victoria Cruz seeks to uncover the truth of her death while celebrating her legacy.

Of her powerful quotes: “No pride for some of us without liberation for all of us.”
