Most consider the NY Stonewall Riots of 1969 to be the birth of the LGBTQ civil rights movement. But there have been activists, artists and innovators in L.A. since the turn of the 20th century. These unsung pioneers paved the way for the Stonewall Riots and for us all.
LA A Queer History seeks to shed light on a part of American history and historical figures who are largely unacknowledged, and in turn, create a newfound dialogue about not only LGBTQ history, but how our Gay and Lesbian brothers and sisters effect the world we live in today. This dialogue will ultimately create a better understanding of the truly unique and utterly American culture of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender community.
The evening’s screening will world premiere clips from L.A. A Queer History as well as Davila’s award winning short Nancy From East Side Clover. Also rarely seen LGBTQ shorts from the ’60s and ’70s by L.A. filmmakers Marshall Goldman and Pat Rocco.
