When San Francisco police raided a popular late-night hangout for transgender people in the city’s impoverished Tenderloin district in 1966 -- three years before the famous rebellion at New York City’s Stonewall Inn -- the patrons unexpectedly fought back. Screaming Queens tells the story of this little-known uprising that helped launch a broader fight for LGBTQ civil rights in the United States.

Join the WORD (Women Organized to Resist & Defend) to celebrate Pride with this film showing and a discussion of LGBTQ resistance and the need to build a broad-based movement to defeat oppression and fight for full equality and liberation.
