Feminist and Queer Happy Hour plus Film Screening

Networking is hard and weird. Meeting casually in a no pressure environment like this happy hour (we hope) is a way to network as people who care about the same things. Ideally there would also be cats, but I haven't figured out how to make that part happen yet.

In February we're back at Remnant Brewery in Somerville. The event is free but we're asking for a suggested donation of $5 (cash or Venmo) which will enter you in the raffle to win two pairs of tickets to a movie at the upcoming Wicked Queer: The Boston LGBT Film Festival. All proceeds will go to support the Wicked Queer Film Fest who will be here to screen two short films, "an (un)natural birth" and Oscar-nominated "Marguerite".

Marguerite: For several years now Marguerite, a diabetic woman in her seventies, has been getting daily visits from Rachel, her home health nurse. Discovering Rachel’s homosexuality plunges Marguerite into her own unacknowledged desires and unfulfilled longing. Directed by Marianne Farley, 20 mins.

an (un)natural birth: A short, deeply personal documentary in which filmmaker Laura Kingwell explores her anxieties about becoming a parent as she and her partner Mairi search online for a sperm donor. Directed by Laura Kingwell, 16 mins.

All are welcome! Please invite folks.
