As Buffalo’s LGBTQ+ spaces face closings and erasure, Squeaky Wheel presents Leilah Weinraub’s SHAKEDOWN (2017). Documenting a series of Black lesbian dance and strip parties in the 2000s, Weinraub’s film is a tender, hilarious, and utopic portrait of a space and community. Join us at Varsity Theatre for the screening of this vital film with director and Hood by Air co-founder Leilah Weinraub in person, followed by a benefit party for Dreamland at Sweets Lounge.
