Dear All,

Prof. SUSAN STRYKER, screens her Emmy Award winning documentary: SCREAMING QUEENS: The Riot at Compton's Cafeteria, followed by a Q&A session.

A unique opportunity to learn about Trans History and question a leading scholar of the discipline.

Friday, 26th FEBRUARY 2016 2pm to 4pm, at The Law School, Manchester Metropolitan University. Tickets are ÂŁ6.50 (ÂŁ4.50 for students/unemployed). Please go to Eventbrite for more details and to book your place. Places are very limited so please book ASAP to avoid disappointment. ... 1280679084

SCREAMING QUEENS tells the little-known story of the first known act of collective, violent resistance to the social oppression of qu*er people in the United States - a 1966 riot in San Francisco's impoverished Tenderloin neighbourhood, three years before the famous gay riot at New York's Stonewall Inn. Screaming Queens introduces viewers to street queens, cops and activist civil rights ministers who recall the riot and paint a vivid portrait of the wild transgender scene in 1960s San Francisco. Integrating the riot's story into the broader fabric of American life, the documentary connects the event to urban renewal, anti-war activism, civil rights and sexual liberation. With enticing archival footage and period music, this unknown story is dramatically brought back to life.

Thanks and Best Wishes,

Fiona Simkiss (Stephen’s assistant)

Professor Stephen Whittle, OBE, FAcSS, DLaws (hc), PhD, MA, LLB, BA
