A story of urban survival and gay self-affirmation in the face of homophobia, transphobia, racism and poverty in 1980s New York.
Paris is Burning provides an intimate insight into the 1980s drag scene in New York. Focusing on the developing ball culture, it explores expressions of identity and the sense of safety and community fostered between marginalised queers as they tackle homophobia, transphobia, racism and poverty through performance.
Drinks and snacks will be provided with the generous support of the Goldsmiths SU Academic Communities fund.
The Cities on Screen series is an informal, student-led space for sociology students and others to reflect on and discuss issues and ideas related to city life. Curated by Sophie Porter and Emily Ballard, MA Cities and Society.
