The LGBT Resource Center of Chase Brexton Health Care will screen the film “Before Stonewall” on June 27 between 10 a.m.-1 p.m. at the first floor community room, 1111 N. Charles St. in Baltimore. A brunch will be served.
“Before Stonewall: The Making of a Gay and Lesbian Community” is a 1984 film about the LGBT community prior to the 1969 Stonewall riots. It was directed by Greta Schiller, and co-directed by Robert Rosenberg.
The documentary investigates national cultural perceptions of homosexuality before the event, looking back on previous decades, particularly in regard to conflicts with police and censorship. In addition to interviews with activists and scholars, the film includes the reflections of renowned writer Allen Ginsberg.
The event is free but space is limited. To RSVP, contact Jennifer at 410-877-2050 x 1049 or at tinyurl.com/stonewallbrunch.
