Join us Sunday June 23rd for an conversation & dinner with Chinese-American lesbian writer, poet, activist, body builder and elder Kitty Tsui before heading across the street to view Frameline Film Festival’s “Homegrown” screening, including the West Coast premiere of “Nice Chinese Girls Don’t” (https://www.jenniferabod.com/films/nice-chinese-girls-dont.htm?doing_wp_cron=1561070367.0912840366363525390625), a documentary on Kitty’s “coming of age in San Francisco in the 1970’s, her challenges, and her continued rise to celebrity by being re-discovered by a whole new generation of feminists.”
I (Tiff Chang) have been working with Kitty to sort through her materials to be archived, and as a young QTAPI person would like to share the joy of learning my history and getting to know my elders with others. Come chat and share a meal with me, Kitty, Kitty’s partner Ellen, and possibly the director! Young people, elders and everyone in-between welcome. Come to both, or just the movie or just the dinner. For headcount, RVSP to highly encouraged.
