July 14th — Co-Presented w/Black Pride
Join us for a special Black Pride screening of “The Stories of Our Lives”, which is an archiving of stories of persons identifying as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and intersex from Kenya. Filmmaker Jim Chuchu called this project ‘Stories of Our Lives’ to tell stories that are not often heard, stories that characterize the queer experience in Kenya.
“Stories of Our Lives” is a Kenyan film, released in 2014. Created by the members of The Nest Collective, a Nairobi-based arts collective, the film is an anthology of five short films dramatizing true stories of LGBT life in Kenya.
“Reel Stories” was created in collaboration with City of Asylum. All screenings take place at Alphabet City: 40 W North Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15212
Doors open at 6:30. Show starts at 7:00. Cocktails and food available for purchase before screening.
All screenings are free and open to the public
