Paris is Burning with performance by House of LaDosha
So if you haven't seen Jennie Livingston's award-winning, critically-acclaimed documentary about the New York's underground drag balls of the late 80's, now's the time. If you have seen it, then you know that watching it full of a theater of diehard fans who know all of dialogue ("Are you going through it?!), is a solid way to spend a Monday night. A special discussion will follow the screening organized by Carolyn Lazard. Plus, we've lined up a performance by House of LaDosha, fresh off opening up for Azealia Banks
