Paris is Burning (Diversity Film Series)
March 20, 2020 at 5:30 pm – 6:00 pm
As Part of the Diversity Film Series, Tri-County Diversity will be hosting a viewing of Paris Is Burning (Rated R) – The Criterion Collection Edition
“Where does voguing come from, and what, exactly, is throwing shade? This landmark documentary provides a vibrant snapshot of the 1980s through the eyes of New York City’s African American and Latinx Harlem drag-ball scene.
Made over seven years, Paris Is Burning offers an intimate portrait of rival fashion “houses,” from fierce contests for trophies to house mothers offering sustenance in a world rampant with homophobia, transphobia, racism, AIDS, and poverty.
Featuring legendary voguers, drag queens, and trans women, Paris Is Burning brings it, celebrating the joy of movement, the force of eloquence, and the draw of community.”
