Chicagoland Shorts Vol. 3 film collection screening
Boathouse Microcinema

Celebrating the new wave of independent cinema in Chicago, Chicagoland Shorts Vol. 3 champions work by underrepresented filmmakers and combines experimental genres into one seamless anthology. Participating filmmaker Emily Esperanza will be in attendance to introduce the show.

Chicagoland Shorts Vol. 3 brings together the best of the city’s so-called “niche” cinemas – experimental genres and works by queer filmmakers, women, and people of color. The program joins those “niches” into one expansive, rich evening of film – helping general audiences experience cinematic versions of Chicago they may have never thought to access.

The short films collected in Chicagoland Shorts Vol. 3 have screened in over 30 countries and 65 cities throughout the world. The work spans many disciplines, including experimental animation, observational doc, and music videos. The filmmakers run the gamut from internationally renowned auteurs to young voices, and include an Emmy-winner, a Fulbright Fellow, and a Wexner resident.

Vol. 3 is produced by Full Spectrum Features NFP and co-curated by Beckie Stocchetti of the Chicago Film Office, Raul Benitez of Comfort Station and the Nightingale Cinema, and award-winning filmmaker Jim Vendiola. Participating filmmaker Emily Esperanza is an artist and curator whose passions lie in discarded aesthetics, liminal spaces, guerrilla approaches, and unconventional narrative. Her recent videos, collected under the title, WRETCHED WOMAN, investigate duration, ritual, sensuality, and archetype, specifically relating to representations of femininity.

Sunday August 27th Doors at 7:30 / show starts at 8:00 $8 - tickets available at the door

Under the Influence: All Trumped Up
through Funhouse Lounge

Under the Influence: All Trumped Up (mature audiences)

In 2015 we created what was intended to be a workshop (9 performances over two weekends) of a new serial musical by Broadway lyricist Ernie Lijoi. However, we soon learned we had a successful show on our hands that would go on to win the 2015 Drammy Awards for Best Original Score and Best Actor in a Musical. So, we’ve “Trumped” it up, added some new faces, streamlined the designs, and we are proud to present Under the Influence: All Trumped Up.

An unapologetically feminist, irreverent musical that tackles the influences that surround all of us by examining our hero, Anita: Anita Drink, Anita Smoke, Anita Cup, whichever Anita she is that day. Whether it’s Juan Valdez pushing us caffeine, Barbie giving us body issues, some cartoon character pushing nicotine, or our local bartender sliding us another drink, we’re all under the influence of something… yes, even Jesus.


The OUTwright Theatre Festival - The mission of this Portland, OR festival is to celebrate contributions of the LGBTQ community to the art of theatre by staging both original and classic works thus creating an incubator of new theatre for and by the LGBTQ community.

Where Are Queer People Welcome?
North Portland Library

Registration required; register online at https://multcolib.org/events/where-are-queer-people-welcome/80127


A majority of Americans now accept gay and lesbian relationships, but the queer population is made up of a diversity of communities and experiences. Are all queer people accepted, tolerated, and embraced everywhere? Where are we made to feel welcome? Where do we feel unwelcome and unsafe? What does it mean to see your experience reflected in media? What does it mean when stories reflecting the queer experience are actively silenced?

Join facilitator Jill Winsor in a discussion that explores how the complexity of the queer community intersects with the spaces and communities that surround us.

This Conversation Project is made possible by the generous support of Oregon Humanities, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Oregon Cultural Trust, and The National Endowment for the Humanities Fund of The Library Foundation.

Gender Identity and Expression: Respect, Care and Language Workshop
The Liquor Store

Our community is full of really amazing and diverse people, each seeking to connect and engage with others. But the gender constructs we've been given can impede our ability to see and interact with individuals outside the binary in ways that feel safe and meaningful. This workshop will be co-presented by Mychel Estevez, an instructor at PSU and UP, and Hannah Stauffer, a Transgender community member. They will discuss how to use inclusive language, common pitfalls, and ways to be sensitive when negotiating and seeking to connect with diverse individuals. Bring your friends and share your thoughts as we seek to make the Portland sexuality communities a fun and safe place for all bodies, genders, and genitals.

A Humble Fierceness: Queer Meditation & Conversation
Shambhala Meditation Center of Portland

Our world can be intimidating. Despite a slowly growing acceptance of queers, we continue to face homo- and transphobia daily, along with all the other isms. Those in power are ramping up their hateful efforts to keep those of us not like them in our place. To stand up for ourselves is to invite more attacks. It is tempting to react with more hate and aggression, thus becoming like our oppressors. That is a trap of darkness and fear that keeps us from our authentic caring, fearless selves. The path of humble confidence requires both compassion and fierceness. It requires impeccable attention to both our vulnerability and our strength.

Join us for meditation and conversation on this topic.

Queer Dharma is a group for LGBTQI practitioners to study and practice meditation and Dharma and to discuss personal experiences. The group serves to send a message to newcomers that they are welcome in the Shambhala Buddhist tradition, and to explore (perhaps in ways that may be unintentionally overlooked or excluded in our regular programming) how we as gay, lesbian, bisexual, pansexual, asexual, transgender, genderqueer and intersex individuals can incorporate the teachings in our everyday lives and in our various social circles. We're scheduled to meet every first Sunday of the month 2-4pm.

Experience your mind as discovered through meditation - instruction is available to you. We practice mindfulness as a group - noticing what arises and constantly coming back to the present moment. We also practice generosity by bringing a small monetary donation (one or two dollars) to each meeting if possible. These funds help to keep the Shambhala Center, our host, operational.

Come as you are - no experience necessary and there are plenty of cushions and chairs.

Tamika Butler, executive director of the Los Angeles Neighborhod Land Trust, will deliver the Ann Niles Active Transportation Lecture this year. She is an advocate and activist who works in support of LGBTQA rights, as well as fighting for social justice and healthy communities. She moved to Los Angeles from Omaha, Nebraska, and became interested in active transportation when she met her wife. It was on bike rides that she fell in love with the city. Uniquely positioned as a queer black woman to understand what marginalized people experience every day, she brought passion, energy and intersectionality to the quest for better bicycle access as the executive director of the Los Angeles Bicycle Coalition. In her new role with the L.A. Neighborhood Land Trust, she continues to help address social and racial equity through building parks and gardens in park-poor communities across Greater Los Angeles.

Butler is a featured speaker at the 2017 National Walking Summit in St. Paul this September, and gave the keynote at the 2016 NACTO Designing Cities conference in Seattle. Prior to leading the L.A. Bicycle Coalition, she was the director of social change strategies at Liberty Hill Foundation, and worked at Young Invincibles as the California director. She received her J.D. from Stanford Law School and her B.A. in Psychology and B.S. in Sociology in her hometown of Omaha, Nebraska.

OUT Film Series: The Times of Harvey Milk
Citizen, 3636 N Mississippi

The Media Institute for Social Change presents OUT: An LGBTQA+ Film Series.

Week Three: The Times of Harvey Milk (1984)

"This lucid, empathic 1984 documentary about the first openly gay elected official in California focusses on Harvey Milk as a grassroots politician who viewed gay rights as just one part of a democratizing movement in San Francisco government. He rose to a seat on the Board of Supervisors in 1977, after the city moved toward neighborhood rule; in chronicling his story, the filmmakers, Rob Epstein and Richard Schmeichen, choose an array of apt yet unpredictable eyewitnesses to his ascent." ––Michael Sragow, The New Yorker

Ticket page: http://www.mediamakingchange.org/the-times-of-harvey-milk-ticket-page

Series description: In the 1980s, the vibrant world of LGBTQA+ activism rose alongside films that brought queer lived experiences and histories to the public eye for the first time. Documentaries captured marginalized queer communities as they carved out spaces for themselves, from the ballrooms of Harlem to political offices in San Francisco. In these spaces, creativity and grit became sources of survival and resistance. This November, we explore documentary as a medium for subversion and antidote to mainstream erasure in the movement for LGBTQA+ rights.

The Media Institute for Social Change is a 501(c)3 non profit, educational organization. This series is intended for educational purposes only.
