Miami's LGBTQ Community Center

LGBTQ Book Club

LGBTQ Book Club

August 8, 2017, 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm

Join us for another monthly LGBTQ book club at Pridelines where instead of assigning a book this month, the group plans to screen the movie "Watermelon Woman," and then discuss the film.

August 8 at Pridelines, 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm (note the time change, to accommodate watching the film)

The Watermelon Woman is a 1996 feature film by filmmaker Cheryl Dunye about Cheryl, a young black lesbian working a day job in a video store while trying to make a film about a black actress from the 1930s known for playing the stereotypical "mammy" roles relegated to black actresses during the period. It was the first feature film directed by a black lesbian.

Thanks are due to our hosts at Pridelines, for sponsoring our Club, and to Jeff Ronci, who keeps us organized and our meetings on track.
