Stonewall Democrats present: "Screaming Queens: The Riot at Compton's Cafeteria"

Monday, Sep 16, 2013 7:00p
Civic Media Center Gainesville, FL

EMMY® Award-winning Screaming Queens tells the little-known story of the first known act of collective, violent resistance to the social oppression of queer people in the United States — a 1966 riot in San Francisco’s impoverished Tenderloin neighborhood, three years before the famous gay riot at New York’s Stonewall Inn.

The film introduces viewers to street queens, cops and civil rights ministers who recall the riot and the transgender scene in 1960s San Francisco, with archival footage
