Celebrate Pride month with Pride at Work Eastern MA for a film screening and discussion on the documentary, Screaming Queens: The Riot at Compton’s Cafeteria. The documentary tells the story of the first known act of collective, militant struggle by trans people, specifically trans women and drag queens, in the face of police harassment and repression in San Francisco’s impoverished Tenderloin neighborhood in 1966. The Riot at Compton’s Cafeteria, which happened three years prior to the Stonewall riot, illustrates that trans resistance and struggle has historically been a dynamic force, deeply intertwined with the broader fabric of resistance in the U.S - including the anti-war, civil rights, and Black Power movements.
