Out in the Night Screening and Discussion
Join us for the last event of the WGST Fall 2017 Theme Semester on the #MeToo movement with a screening and discussion of Out in the Night.
In 2006, under the neon lights of a gay-friendly neighborhood in New York City, a group of African-American lesbians were violently threatened by a man on the street. The women fought back and were later charged with gang assault and attempted murder. The award-winning Out in the Night examines the sensational case and the women’s uphill battle, revealing the role that race, gender identity and sexuality play in our criminal justice system.
