Tuesday 14th March 8:15pm @eshcoop Paris is Burning and discussion with @mystika.glamoor !!

Come watch Paris is Burning (1990), the ground-breaking queer documentary directed by Jennie Livingston in 1990. The film explores the ball room scene of 1980’s New York and issues of racism, class, homophobia, transphobia and the impact of AIDS on the African-American and Latino communities portrayed.

Stay for the discussion with the iconic @mystika.glamoor , socialist socialite of Edinburgh drag, hostess of @glamoorkk and co-owner of @kafekweer.

Drag was and is a vibrant part of queer culture, let’s come together for this screening and following discussion about this iconic film and current attacks on drag and trans communities.

Can’t wait !!
