Still from Princess CYD

We love and support our gay male family, but let’s face it, patriarchy doesn’t stop when queerness begins, and the disturbingly lesser amount of lesbian representation compared to gay male representation speaks to that original binary inequality.

Lets check out our recommendations for 2017:

Seventeen

Austria; German with English subtitles

At 17, things can turn from carefree to catastrophe in an instant.

Especially love. Everything seems possible but nothing is certain in Monja Art’s Seventeen (Siebzehn). Don’t miss it.

We often watch documentaries about the Stonewall riots and subsequent protests in the United States, however, rarely do we see the lead-up to this iconic turning point. This free seniors screening of The Lavender Scare aims to fill in some of these blanks.

CHAVELA
