Sex & Gender

the peculiar kind: it’s pride month at new york university!

October 12, 2012

It’s Pride Month at New York University and the organizers have a calendar filled with goodies. One being the Reel Queer Film Series. If you haven’t seen the film ‘PARIAH’, you can check it out on October 18th at NYU. It is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!
Directed by Tisch alum Dee Rees, Pariah highlights the trials and tribulations of a young black woman in Brooklyn as she explores her sexual and gender identity. It illustrates how the responses of family, friends and significant others may be simultaneously empowering and devastating for queer folks of color. The film showcases a compelling coming of age story in NYC at the intersection of racial identity, sexual and gender expression.

What’s also special about this screening is that The Peculiar Kind’s Mila a.k.a. Hubba, will be on the panel. Woot Woot!
Check out NYU’s calendar of events for additional screenings including “The Peculiar Kind” on October 29th followed by a Q&A with the Directors, Alexis Casson and Caneisha “Mursi” Haynes.
