Ghostlight Community Conversation: Transgender Equality
Portland Center Stage at The Armory

On January 19th, The Armory, in collaboration with The Ghostlight Project, joined over 500 theaters across the country and pledged a commitment to our community: we pledged that the theater would continue to be a safe space for productive civic conversation. We're living up that that commitment with monthly community conversations, where we'll bring in experts on relevant topics, and open the mic up for you to share your story as well.

This month, we've invited Q Center to moderate a conversation regarding transgender rights and equality, and to discuss how recent legislation such as North Carolina's House Bill 2 --the "Bathroom Bill" --can impact the nation and our community here in Portland. Join us on Sunday for a conversation with Geeta Lewis, and Neola Young with guest moderator and Co-Director of Sankofa Collective Northwest Leila Haile!

5th Ave Presents: ReAgitator (w/Director)
5th Avenue Cinema, 510 SW Hall

Dir. Dylan Greenberg (2017); USA, 120m Starring: Amanda Flowers, Jurgen Azazel Munster, Aurelio Voltaire, Alan Merrill, Schooly-D, and Lloyd Kaufman

Join us in honoring Trans Day of Remembrance a few days early with an incredibly inventive film from independent trans-filmmaker Dylan Greenberg. Her film Re-Agitator: Revenge of The Parody, tells the bizarre story of a mad scientist using a cynical serum to revive a beautiful woman back from the dead leading to complete and total chaos. Using an arsenal of homages and spins off of classic and modern horror, Re-Agitator is bound to satisfy a weird and experimental itch. The film will feature an introduction from Dylan herself, including discussion of her experience with being an indie filmmaker and multi-media artist in NYC. This event will be donation-based instead of our regular ticketing prices, all proceeds will go to the artists.
