We invite you to “Kick it with SPARK” on Thursday, June 25, at 6 p.m. as they host a screening of the award-winning film, “Out in the Night.” This event marks the launch of a new monthly meeting that is specifically geared toward queer/trans*/LGBTQ youth of color.
Directed by blair dorosh-walther, this documentary chronicles the lives of a group of Black lesbians, dubbed by the media as a “gang of Killer Lesbians,” following their arrest after a man violently threatened them and they defended themselves. “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.” Youth and young adults of color who identify as queer/trans*/LGBTQ are especially encouraged to attend.
SPARK is located at 250 Georgia Hill Ave, Suite 316, Atlanta, Georgia 30312. Refreshments will be provided.
This event is a collaboration with Georgia Equality and POV, PBS’ award-winning nonfiction film series. Visit pbs.org/pov for more information on this film and more.
Kick It With SPARK! is a monthly program for LGBTQQ youth of color (16 – 25) to have a dedicated space to socialize, build community, and find resources. It is held every fourth Thursday of each month. For more event details and information, email Quita@sparkrj.org.
