“The Stroll” Screening

Please join the Ishtar Collective, Thrive Program, and Trans Program for a screening of “The Stroll” at Media Factory (208 Flynn Ave Suite 2G, Burlington, VT 05401) on October 25th from 6-8:30pm. We will host a discussion of the film following the screening. Drinks and snacks will be provided.

About the Film:

When Director Kristen Lovell moved to New York City in the 1990s and began to transition, she was fired from her job. With so few options to earn money to survive, Kristen, like many transgender women of color during this era, began sex work in an area known as “The Stroll” in the Meatpacking District of lower Manhattan, where trans women congregated and forged a deep camaraderie to protect each other from harassment and violence.

Reuniting her sisters to tell this essential New York story from their first-hand experiences, Kristen’s intimate narration and interviews bring an astonishing array of archival material of bygone New York from the 1970s through the early 2000s to life.
