The Roanoke Diversity Center's Rainbow Cinema is showing "Paris is Burning" in celebration of Black History Month. This is a FREE event with snacks provided!
"Jennie Livingston's iconic documentary offers an intimate portrait of the Harlem drag balls, where rival fashion “houses” compete for trophies and cash prizes in categories like “face,” “femme queen realness” and "voguing." Winner of a Sundance Grand Jury Prize, Paris is Burning celebrates how one group of New Yorkers, for whom racism, poverty, and homophobia are all too real, create a world of sustenance and joy."
