Sadly, gentrification is too often a code word for erasing diversity – racial, economic, social, and political. We recently learned about My Brooklyn, a documentary exploring changes within New York City’s iconic borough since 2001. Swanky condominiums and retail stores began appearing, transforming the landscape.

The film screening (suggested donation of $5) and discussion on Thursday, June 20, 7pm at MICA’s new graduate center (131 W. North Ave.) are hosted by our favorite radicals, Red Emma’s and Station North Arts & Entertainment. Stay afterwards for dialogue moderated by John Duda and Kate Khatib.

Check out the conversation on the Marc Steiner show.

Dynamic films, like novels, transport us to other worlds beyond our own. It’s good to free yourself from those familiar bubbles. This is why we’re especially thrilled about about the 2nd annual Charm City LGBT Film Festival at Creative Alliance from Thursday, June 6 to Sunday, June 9. It even kicks off with a fantastic party, Celluloid Closet LGBT Film Fest Gayla!

The seven films offer insights into a myriad of LGBT experiences from lesbians in Great Britain (Stud Life) to the compelling documentary (I Am Divine!) about Baltimore’s own Harris Glenn Milstead, a.k.a. Divine (1945-1988), an iconic underground star featured in numerous John Waters films.

This is definitely cinema worth watching. Check out the full schedule.
