FIERCE Queer Film Screening on Pier 46: Camp!
6/14/12, Thursday at sunset
Join FIERCE and our community allies for a free screening of "CAMP" at Pier 46, as part of our summer programming events. There will be tabling by several organization starting at 6:30pm. The movie will begin at sunset. Safe public space is rapidly decreasing in the city. Free programming for the LGBTQ community is a crucial way to maintain the Hudson River Park as our safe space, while providing programming for a community that is often ignored. Come celebrate this amazing victory with FIERCE, our allies and other community members.
