Know What Queers Know: Film Screening
Please join us for a special screening of Know What Queers Know, a video project created by Erin Gentry and Erica Nix and directed by Jess Gardner. Know What Queers Know queers the popular children’s television series Reading Rainbow, rethinking the video series as a way to encourage people to read feminist-, queer-, and trans-oriented books in order to educate themselves about feminist, queer, and trans culture and ideas.
Featuring a star-studded cast of queer Austinites including Rebecca Havemeyer, Dr Laura Gutierrez, p1nkstar, Ashley Hicks, Beth Schindler, Gretchen Phillips (and more!), as well as Erin Gentry, Erica Nix, and Jess Gardner themselves, the video explores topics in queer and feminist literature, as well as offering reviews of queer and feminist books by queer and feminist people. Shot in the studio and on location at BookWoman, this unapologetically queer and feminist short video welcomes those queer and non-queer to open up a book and learn!
The screening will take place on June 29th at 7:45pm at Book Woman, Austin’s very own feminist bookstore! Located at 5501 North Lamar #A-105, Austin, TX 78751.
