"We revolt simply because, for many reasons, we can no longer breathe" - Frantz Fanon
Earlier this week we made a mistake by scheduling a screening of "Paris is Burning" without doing adequate research about the film. Someone brought to our attention the problematic history of the film, including the way the filmmaker exploited and misrepresented queer & trans people of color and their communities in the film. The intention was to screen a film that would be celebratory in nature about queer & trans people of color communities, but we realize that it ultimately had a different impact. We're sorry that this mistake happened in the first place and we're sorry that people felt hurt or angered by the event. We're committed to doing better and acknowledging when we mess up.
