How to document and tell queer history?

Join us at Litteraturhuset for the screening of Susan Stryker’s documentary The Screaming Queens of Compton, followed by a panel discussion on how to document and tell queer history.
Participants: Susan Stryker, Hadley Renkin, C. Anzio Jacobs, Dan Healey and Svati Shah.
Chair: Kari Jegerstedt
Screaming Queens tells the forgotten story of the first collective act of militant resistance to the social oppression of queer people in the United States – a 1966 riot by transgender prostitutes at a late night cafeteria in San Francisco, three years before the famous gay riot at New York's Stonewall Inn.
