    Yo Soy Así is a documentary film produced and directed by Jodi Savitz, edited by Taylor Soppe, and assistant produced by Joseph Stein. The film follows four Argentine, lesbian-identified women, as they recount their stories of coming-out, first loves, sex with women, overcoming prejudice, and their hopes for the future. The filmmakers hope to shed light on the complexities of lesbian life in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and how the different generations of lesbian women have accepted their sexuality. The producer is currently working on a second, feature-length documentary film entitled Girl on Girl. Girl On Girl follows a group of women as they struggle to defend themselves as passing lesbians in the face of heteronormative skepticism. www.girlongirlmovie.com I @girlongirlmovie I girlongirlmovie@gmail.com

    • Pay It No Mind: Marsha P. Johnson


      from Redux Pictures / Added

      Pay It No Mind: The Life and Times of Marsha P. Johnson -- Marsha, what a trip. She was something else. I vividly remember seeing her back in the 70's & 80's on Christopher Street. Kids would point at her in awe with bulging bug-eyes saying, "See that crazy drag queen over there?" I would respond, "Well honey, she started the Stonewall riots." The listener's mouth without fail would drop agape, because she was truly a sight to see. Then, after that, all the up and coming queens whenever we saw her would pause & genuflect as she made her way along the cobblestone streets of Greenwich Village. She is an undisputed icon. She's the Statue of Liberty, the Eiffel Tower, and the Sphinx all rolled up into one divine ball. Jack Walls (A legend in his own right) This feature-length documentary focuses on revolutionary trans-activist, Marsha "Pay it No Mind" Johnson, a Stonewall instigator, Andy Warhol model, drag queen, sex worker, starving actress, and Saint. "Pay It" captures the legendary gay/human rights activist as she recounts her life at the forefront of The Stonewall Riots in the 1960s, the creation of S.T.A.R. (Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries) with Sylvia Rivera in the '70s, and a New York City activist throughout the '80s and early '90s. Through her own words, as well as interviews with gay activist/reporter Randy Wicker, former Cockettes performer Agosto Machado, author Michael Musto, Hot Peaches founder/performer, Jimmy Camicia, and Stonewall activists Bob Kohler, Danny Garvin, Tommy Lanigan-Schmidt, and Martin Boyce, Marsha's story lives on. Featuring the soulful music of: Antony and the Great Johnsons. This documentary screened in 2012 at the IFC theater in New York, the British Film Institute in London, and La Mutinerie in Paris France. You should see it.

      • Tim Robbins reads Martin Duberman, "Stonewall"


        from Voices of a People's History / Added

        Here actor Tim Robbins reads from Martin Duberman's account of what became known as the Stonewall Riots, in New York City, on June 28, 1969. Tim Robbins is introduced by Howard Zinn at the 92nd Street Y celebration of Young People's History on May 13, 2009. Produced by Voices of a People's History (peopleshistory.us) in collaboration with Seven Stories Press. (youngchicagoauthors.org). Learn more at Facebook.com/VoicesofaPeoplesHistory and on Twitter @VPH. Here's what Howard Zinn and Anthony Arnove had to say about Stonewall in their introduction to this reading in their book Voices of a People's History of the United States (Seven Stories Press 2004; see: catalog.sevenstories.com/products/voices-of-a-peoples): //One of the most important moments of resistance from the 1960s was the Stonewall Rebellion. On the night of June 27–28, 1969, a multiracial group of gays who had gathered at the Stonewall Inn on Christopher Street in New York City’s Greenwich Village resisted when police sought to shut down the bar (allegedly for serving alcohol without a license) and to arrest patrons. They fought back, as the historian Martin Duberman recounts here, and, in doing so, helped spur a new, more militant phase of the struggle for gay liberation.//

                Dir. Victor Silverman & Susan Stryker 2005 57 min. USA EMMY® Award-winning "Screaming Queens" tells the little-known story of the first known act of collective, violent resistance to the social oppression of queer people in the United States — a 1966 riot in San Francisco’s impoverished Tenderloin neighborhood, three years before the famous gay riot at New York’s Stonewall Inn. "Screaming Queens" introduces viewers to street queens, cops and activist civil rights ministers who recall the riot and paint a vivid portrait of the wild transgender scene in 1960s San Francisco. Integrating the riot’s story into the broader fabric of American life, the documentary connects the event to urban renewal, anti-war activism, civil rights and sexual liberation. With enticing archival footage and period music, this unknown story is dramatically brought back to life. "Screaming Queens" is a production of Victor Silverman and Susan Stryker produced in association with ITVS and KQED, with funding provided by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. http://cart.frameline.org/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=T636 Northern California EMMY® for Outstanding Achievement, Historical/Cultural Program “If there was one film I’d want to show to my students to inspire them both to do and to make history, "Screaming Queens: The Riot at Compton’s Cafeteria" is it (and it clocks just under an hour!). Transgender historian and activist Susan Stryker dives into the archives and emerges with a story about the first collective militant queer resistance to police harassment, not at the Stonewall Bar in New York in 1969, but at Gene Compton’s Cafeteria in the heart of San Francisco’s Tenderloin district. It’s a story that is at the foundation of everything from glam rock to lesbian separatism, gay struggles based on civil rights activism to squatters and housing rights agitation (and therefore right for classes in everything from cinema to political theory). It’s also a story of unlikely heroes and heroines, putting passion and power at the center of an emergent queer historiography.” - Amy Villarejo, Associate Professor in Film and Director of the Feminist, Gender, & Sexuality Studies Program, Cornell University “Stryker and Silverman have here triumphantly intervened in queer theory and queer history with their brilliant archival work and their careful elaboration of the relations between gender, sexuality and all the other differences that structure the world differently for different individuals at different times and in different places. A truly great scholarly putting-to-use of the moving image documentary format, this tape's investigation of being something---that is, "trans"---before it was essentially possible, makes it of the utmost relevance to gender theory, queer theory and sexuality studies today. A terrific investigation of the multiplicity of power relations that surround any historical event, with fantastic use of archival materials, "Screaming Queens" is a wonderfully refreshing corrective to Stonewall-centric U.S. LGBTQ history." - Richard Cante, Media & Cultural Studies and Program in Sexuality Studies, University of North Carolina
