Approximate Length: 90 minutes

Film screening followed by Q&A with Karen Williams.

Filmed live to a sold-out audience at Hollywood’s Knitting Factory, Williams rifles off irreverent wisecracks about everything from what turns her on – power and cash flow – to making her body a temple that’s open to all visitors. Celebrating 25 outrageous, outspoken, and out-and-out fabulous years of being in the funny business, Williams fires off wicked riffs about banks holding our money hostage, computers taking control of our lives, and the Internet reinventing our intimacy. Regularly seen on HBO and claiming once to have been a sex goddess, the now self-proclaimed Goddess of Sleep who’d choose a sandwich over sex, is all-out hilarity in high heels that will have you constantly craving for more!

MOVIE NIGHT:
AFTER STONEWALL
Thursday, June 24
5:00 PM (PT), 7:00 PM (CT), 800 PM (ET)
Approximate Length: 90 minutes

Celebrate Pride and learn about our rich history at the film screening of this award-winning documentary!

Narrated by Melissa Etheridge

Film Synopsis:
In 1969 the police raided the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in New York City’s Greenwich Village, leading to three nights of rioting by the city’s gay community. With this outpouring of courage and unity, the Gay Liberation Movement had begun.

After Stonewall, the sequel to Before Stonewall chronicles the history of lesbian and gay life from the riots at Stonewall to the end of the century. The documentary captures the hard work, struggles, tragic defeats, and exciting victories experienced during this time, and it explores how AIDS dramatically changed the direction of the movement.

The film tells the remarkable tale of how LGBT people, a heretofore hidden and despised group, became a vibrant and integral part of America’s family, and, indeed, the world community.

Featuring:
Dorothy Allison, Rita Mae Brown, Barney Frank, Barbara Gittings, Jewelle Gomez, Larry Kramer, Sheila James Kuehl, Armistead Maupin, Elaine Noble, Renae Ogletree, Leslea Newman, Barbara Smith, Robin Tyler, Yolanda ‘Yo-Yo’ Whittaker, and many more!

A CANDID CONVERSATION WITH
ANDREA MEYERSON...

INTERVIEWED BY KATE CLINTON!
Saturday, June 26
4:00 PM (PT), 6:00 PM (CT), 7:00 PM (ET)
Approximate Length: 90 minutes

Kate Clinton will be interviewing Andrea Meyerson, founder and president of Women On A Roll, Women On The Net, and StandOut Productions.

Andrea could not be more honored to be interviewed by one of her idols, Kate Clinton!

Andrea Meyerson has created a career out of her passion: giving a voice to women and the LGBTQ people. A prolific producer of film, TV, and live productions, she has made it her life’s work to share and preserve the rich culture and history of the LGBTQ community.

As founder and president of StandOut Productions, Andrea has produced and directed more than 30 films and TV specials, which have aired on Showtime, Logo, Netflix, Astral, and at film festivals worldwide. She has completed 12 feature documentaries, including the multiple award-winning, Laughing Matters; Letter to Anita, an award-winning film about anti-gay crusader Anita Bryant; Clambake, a history of Women’s Week in Provincetown; and I Stand Corrected, about the world-famous jazz bassist Jennifer Leithem which had received 14 awards worldwide. Her newest documentary, This is Jessica, is slated to hit the film festival circuit this year.

Andrea’s entrepreneurial path to producing LGBTQ content began in 1995 when she founded Women On A Roll (WOAR), a grassroots bicycle club. As word spread and membership soared, Andrea began planning events and excursions, and the club soon evolved into one of the country’s largest social organizations for lesbians. Today, WOAR focuses on boutique worldwide travel, providing unique social and cultural opportunities to women.

In 1997, Andrea broadened her reach by founding StandOut Productions. Before beginning her filmmaking career, she spent nearly a decade producing fundraisers for LGBTQ non-profits including the Los Angeles LGBTQ Center, HRC, NCLR, SLDN, Outfest, and L.A. Shanti. Her fundraising efforts have raised nearly two million dollars for community organizations. 

With the goal of amplifying LGBTQ voices, she began producing live events and has staged some of the country’s best-known entertainers, including Brandi Carlile, Wanda Sykes, Indigo Girls, k.d. lang, and Joan Armatrading. She has also produced and directed numerous TV comedy specials featuring LGBTQ stars such as Kate Clinton, Suzanne Westenhoefer, Karen Williams, and Alec Mapa. 

Andrea is the recipient of 20+ awards for her work, including becoming the first openly gay recipient of YWCA’s Women of Achievement Award. She was a Pride Honoree for the 2020 California Legislative LGBTQ Caucus. In 2019, the Hollywood Women’s Film Institute presented her with the Dorothy Arzner Director’s Award for LGBTQ Impact in Film. Other notable awards include HRC’s Local Hero Award, Los Ángeles LGBTQ Center’s L.A.C.E. (Lesbians Active in Community Empowerment) Award, The L-Fund Visionary of the Year Award, and earlier this month she received a Proclamation from the City of West Hollywood.

In March 2020, Andrea launched Women On The Net, an online entertainment and social platform initially created to serve the lesbian community during the pandemic. Since then, she has curated, produced, and hosted more than 350 virtual events, often featuring iconic guests such as Lily Tomlin, Meredith Baxter, Paula Poundstone, and Kate Clinton, to name a few.

MOVIE NIGHT:
AHEAD OF THE CURVE
Wednesday, June 30
5:00 PM (PT), 7:00 PM (CT), 800 PM (ET)
Approximate Length: Two hours

Pride Month officially ends today but your Pride will definitely live on after viewing this inspirational documentary!

Immediately following the screening, there will be a Q&A with Franco, the film’s subject, and the producers.

AHEAD OF THE CURVE is the story of one of the most influential women in lesbian history you’ve never heard of and the impact her work continues to have today.

Growing up, Franco never saw any representation of queer women–she didn’t even know it was possible for a woman to be gay. When she realized she was a lesbian, it changed the course of her life.

In 1990, Franco created a safe place for lesbians in the form of Curve magazine. Her approach to threats and erasure in the ‘90s was to lift all kinds of lesbians up and make them beautifully visible. The magazine helped build a foundation for many intersectional movements being led by today’s activists in the face of accelerating threats to the LGBTQ community. Decades later, as her legacy faces extinction and she reassesses her life after a disabling injury, she sets out to understand visibility work being led by an intersection of queer women today.

Featuring Andrea Pino-Silva, Kim Katrin, Denice Frohman, Amber Hikes, Jewelle Gomez, Melissa Etheridge, and Lea DeLaria, and a score composed by the legendary Meshell Ndegeocello, AHEAD OF THE CURVE celebrates the legacy of a movement while considering the agenda of its future.
