Join us the first Wednesday of each month this summer for an LGBTQ film!
We’re not only bringing you the film itself, but beforehand we’ll take a few minutes for a mini-presentation about LGBTQ history as it relates to the film we’re watching, brought to you by the YP Staff! We’ll share some queer and trans history and stories with you, then watch a movie!
WEDNESDAY, JULY 5th / 6:00-8:00 / RENT!
Prezzie: We’ll explore the AIDS crisis and how it’s impacted our LGBTQ communities both historically and today.
Film synopsis: In this musical, set at the dawn of the 1990s, a group of New Yorkers struggle with their careers, love lives and the effects of the AIDS epidemic on their community. Mark (Anthony Rapp), an aspiring filmmaker, and Roger (Adam Pascal), an HIV-positive musician, scramble for money to pay rent to their landlord and former roommate, Benny (Taye Diggs). Meanwhile, their friend Tom (Jesse L. Martin), a professor, has fallen for Angel (Wilson Jermaine Heredia), who is slowly dying of AIDS.
