CLITERION COLLECTION: A new film series centering dÿke and trans representation in cinema. Selections by resident they/thems Lu & Mary.
This acclaimed documentary — made by one of the fashion worlds most sought after casting directors — picks up where Paris is Burning left off, focusing on a group of six NYC lesbians who dress and identify as men, blurring the lines between butch dyke and trans-male identities. For our guest host, writer-artist-performer and member of NY’s own House of Ladosha, Juliana Huxtable, the film explores “the complexities of how desire is negotiated between the multitude of gender types in the ballroom community.”
