1990 American documentary film directed by Jennie Livingston. Filmed in the mid-to-late 1980s, it chronicles the ball culture of New York City and the African-American, Latino, gay, and transgender communities involved in it. The film is considered to be an invaluable documentary of the end of the "Golden Age" of New York City drag balls, and critics have praised it as a thoughtful exploration of race, class, gender, and sexuality in America.

Group discussion will follow the film. Snacks will be served.

$5 but no one turned away for the lack of funds.
