LGBTQ History Month: Paris Is Burning and Discussion (DICE)


Time: Thursday, October 3, 2019 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM

Location: US Bank Conference Theater

Admission: Free

This documentary focuses on drag queens living in New York City and their "house" culture, which provides a sense of community and support for the flamboyant and often socially shunned performers. Groups from each house compete in elaborate balls that take cues from the world of fashion. Also touching on issues of racism and poverty, the film features interviews with a number of renowned drag queens, including Willi Ninja, Pepper LaBeija and Dorian Corey. There will be an engaging discussion following the film around ballroom culture today, the tv show POSE, and much more! This event counts towards 1 DICE credit.
