cafém in January: Before Stonewall

On 17/01, cafém starts at 4pm and invites you to enjoy coffee, cake and other delicacies (please feel free to bring something along). Come around to have a nice chat or to take the time to burry yourselves into one of our many (queer-)feminist books and zines. Kids are very welcome, as well.
At 6pm, we’re showing the film “Before Stonewall” (USA, 87 min, documentation, English w/ German subtitles)

“Before Stonewall: The Making of a Gay and Lesbian Community is a 1984 American documentary film about the LGBT community prior to the 1969 Stonewall riots. Using filmed recollections and a wealth or archival material, Before Stonewall traces the social, political, and cultural development of the gay and lesbian community – from the social experimentation of the Roaring Twenties, to the discovery of the true size of this hidden society during World War II, to the scapegoating of homosexuals durng the McCarthy era, to the development of the early homophile rights movement. Often funny or ironical and sometimes sad, Before Stonewall provides an informative and engaging portrait of the history of ‘ordinary gay people’ in America.”
