Sistah Sinema Presents: Tracks and Gender Freaks

Our September screenings will celebrate, uplift, and support queer youth of color. “As members of more than one minority group, GLBTQ*† youth of color face special challenges in a society which often presents heterosexuality as the only acceptable orientation and in which nonwhites have disproportionately higher rates of negative sexual outcomes. Economic and cultural disparities, as well as sexual risk taking and other risk-taking behavior, make these youth vulnerable to HIV, pregnancy, and sexual violence,” Advocates For Youth http://www.advocatesforyouth.org/storage/advfy/documents/fsglbtq_yoc.pdf

In Tracks, based on true events, a shy and lonely runaway falls for a flirtatious high school basketball player with an overbearing, church-loving grandmother.

In Gender Freak, Rachel accepts Sammy into her band and they play the dance, where Rachel defends her friends against homophobic insults from the audience in front of the entire school.

The event is Saturday, September 14, 2013. 6pm-8pm. Located at IN OTHER WORDS BOOKSTORE 14 NE Killingsworth Portland, OR 97217
