FILM | $10 | 18+ | Join us for a screening of 'Shakedown," a film documenting the underground lesbian club in the 90s. Doors open at 6pm, the film will begin at 7! Snacks and refreshments will be provided.
"Shakedown" began as a series of parties founded by and for African American women in Los Angeles that featured go-go dancing and strip shows for the city's lesbian underground scene.
Inspired by trans-woman Mahogany who, as the mother of the scene, presided over queer strip shows and balls for non-heterosexual audiences in the 1980s. "Shakedown" was more than just a strip club; as one of the few spaces for lesbian subculture, the club brought together a community of freaks and queers of color, and for that it suffered police reprisals.
The film's director is herself a member of this community; using exclusive archive material, posters and flyers, her film takes a personal look at female desire that is rarely presented on the big screen.
NOTE: It is always a good idea to verify date, time, location and other information prior to going.
