Screaming Queens Documentary

This documentary focuses on transgender women and drag queens who fought police harassment at Compton’s Cafeteria in San Francisco in 1966, three years before the famous riot at Stonewall in New York City.

This event is part of the 2024 Black History Month Celebration by James Farmer Multicultural Center at the University of Mary Washington.
For centuries, African Americans have used the arts as a powerful medium for cultural expression, community resonance, and social critique. Each generation, within the African diaspora spanning from the Harlem Renaissance to present day, has transformed the globe through their numerous contributions in literature, fashion, film, theater, music, architecture, and language. Join the James Farmer Multicultural Center’s celebration and recognition of these memorable stories.
