Welcome to our group! We welcome friends from all ethnic backgrounds, sexual orientations, and age. We value diversity in all its forms and reject prejudice against immigrants and refugees. We watch and discuss valuable, meaningful movies. Please check out the many meetups already scheduled for the near future. We have a thing for edgy, boundary-pushing, and first of all foreign movies. Please keep in mind our no-show policy. If you can't attend a meetup you signed up for, please be kind and cancel your RSVP. After 3 no-shows, members are removed from our group for good.
Marsha P. Johnson was many things: outspoken LGBT activist, downtown superstar, model muse to Andy Warhol. What she never was, her friends and family agree, was suicidal. And yet that’s how the police classified her death when she was found floating in New York’s Hudson River on July 6, 1992. David France’s vibrant, powerful documentary seeks justice for a pivotal figure in queer history from Stonewall on, and a sort of loving resurrection. But the movie is also a vivid portrait of a vanished New York: A grimy, dangerous, riotously colorful place populated by indelible characters like Johnson’s fellow trans trailblazers Sylvia Rivera and Victoria Cruz, both of whom feature heavily.
