Pride Movie Screening: The Watermelon Woman

OUT at The Movies | Screening: The Watermelon Woman, and short Home Movie | Jacob Burns Film Center | Group gathers at 6:40 pm for 7:00 PM Screening | Free tickets available: [email protected]

The Pride Screenings continue!  Come and join the cinematic fun with the screening of: 

The Watermelon Woman

Re-released for its 20th anniversary in a pristine 2K HD restoration, The Watermelon Woman is the story of a 20-something black lesbian (played by director Cheryl Dunye) struggling to make a documentary about Fae Richards, a beautiful and elusive 1930s black film actress. A landmark of New Queer Cinema, it’s “funny and smart, full of astute observations about identity and history,” says the Village Voice. “Dunye’s audacious, joyous debut feature captures the process of falling hopelessly in love with the movies.”

Home Movie

Using her family’s home movies and her talent for parody, Jan Oxenberg gives herself a cheerful lesbian childhood. “The thing I liked best about being a cheerleader was being with the other cheerleaders . . . the football match was just an excuse.”

Special thanks to Community Partner, Jacob Burns Film Center!

JOIN US: The LOFT Marches with Senator Gillibrand

JOIN The LOFT as we march with US Senator Gillibrand!
U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is a longtime champion fighting for LGBTQIA+ equality in everything from housing to health care. She led the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" and efforts to protect LGBTQIA+ service members from discrimination and allow them the right to serve openly in the military. She's worked to support LGBTQIA+ businesses and protect against lending discrimination and helped galvanize Congress to pass the Respect for Marriage Act. Senator Gillibrand is an original co-sponsor of the Equality Act, and she leads the Hate Crimes Commission Act and the John Lewis Every Child Deserves a Family Act.
The exact time and location of the march formation are TBD. We will email each registrant the details as soon as they are available. Please note that the NYC Pride March runs from 12-6 PM. However, we are happy to have you join us for as long as you can!
