Dirty Looks NYC culls from our first three years of programming with film and video spanning 1990 - 2013, all titles which shaped or defined Dirty Looks NYC as a project and the queer moment, at large. Looking back from the edge of queer futurity, Dirty Looks NYC: Three Years features queer takes on Black Power, riot grrrl, maternity, and Madonna's "Vogue," culminating with a live performance of new material by Colin Self.

The screening will be followed by a celebratory moment, with music provided by Brother B (Bruno Coviello)
