Delhi – June 28th

220px-Pariah_FilmPoster

The American Centre is screening Pariah (2011) as a part of their LGBT Pride Month celebrations. The movie is about a Brooklyn (New York City) teenager who juggles conflicting identities and risks friendship, heartbreak, and family in a desperate search for sexual expression. Adepero Oduye portrays Alike (pronounced “ah-lee-kay”), a 17-year-old African-American woman who lives with her parents (Kim Wayans and Charles Parnell) and younger sister (Sahra Mellesse) in Brooklyn’s Fort Greene neighborhood. A gifted student, Alike is quietly but firmly embracing her identity as a lesbian. With the support of her best friend Laura (Pernell Walker), she is especially eager to find a girlfriend. Wondering how much she can confide in her family, Alike strives to get through adolescence with grace, humour, and tenacity.

Qashti ki Matargashti- Movie Evening

4 Jun

rituparnoShare the magic of the silver screen with old friends and new at Qashti’s movie night and Matargashti this month. Come for the film, the discussion, chai, snacks, meeting and making friends.

This time we are paying tribute to and enjoying the work of the late Rituparno Ghosh, an acclaimed director and actor, as well as an openly gender-non conforming person. His films explore women’s lives, queer lives, trans* and gender non-conforming lives in contemporary India, bringing up questions of where and how queerness is present in all our everyday lives and how it is often accepted and sometimes still not understood or sustainable. We will watch one film and follow it up with discussions and mingling over snacks. The venue and directions will be sent in a private message to all those who confirm. Feel free to bring friends, but keep in mind, this space is meant only for lesbian, bisexual women and trans people assigned female at birth.

Please call us at 9711282307 or join us on facebook http://www.facebook.com/qashti.lbt

See you all there on June 8th!
