Jacob Burns Film Center | Pride Street Party & Screening of Little Richard: I Am Everything and Q&A With Director| Street Party begins 5:30 PM-7:30 PM | Screening 7:30-9:00 | Q+A with Director 9:00ish
We are so proud to share with you that LOFT Business Partner (and Pride Vendor!) The Jacob Burns Film Center is kicking off Pride Month with a Street party and film screening of Little Richard: I Am Everything! The LOFT will have a table at the street party, come and say hi! Enjoy the food trucks and other tables, and get ready for a phenomenal film followed by Q&A.
Lisa Cortés’ Sundance opening night documentary tells the story of the Black Queer origins of rock n’ roll, exploding the whitewashed canon of American pop music to reveal the innovator—the originator—Richard Penniman. Through a wealth of archive and performance that brings us into Richard’s complicated inner world, the film unspools the icon’s life story with all its switchbacks and contradictions.

DRAG is not a crime it IS ART!
Drag Performers have been the heart and soul of Pride Culture for decades! "DRAG is not a crime it IS ART!" is a simple but powerful statement that counters so much of the toxic rhetoric and actions being spewed by radical groups against us. Wearing our shirts, pins, bags, and stickers lets the world know where we stand: Our art, our expression, our journeys, our lives matter...and we will not be silent, we're gonna get LOUD!
Also, 100% of the proceeds from this merchandise go to supporting The LOFT's programs and services. The LOFT is the ONLY full-service, non-profit, community center serving the LGBTQ+ community in Westchester County and the largest in the Lower Hudson Valley region. Your support helps us fund the support groups, social activities, and special events that have given thousands of our community members the empowerment, support, and acceptance they need to live their fullest lives for the past 40 years!
