OutCinema 2017

In 2017, OutCinema featured the New York Premiere of the uproarious comedy CHERRY POP, starring drag superstars and RuPaul’s Drag Race alums Bob the Drag Queen, Detox, Latrice Royale, & Tempest DuJour, who were in attendance for a hilarious talkback. The Q&A was followed by a massive Pride party and live performances from Tempest DuJour and popular NYC drag queen Chelsea Piers. 

OutCinema 2016

In 2016, the inaugural OutCinema featured STRIKE A POSE, a rousing documentary about Madonna’s 1990 Blonde Ambition tour dancers and their impact on LGBTQ expression and culture. Two of the film’s subjects, Jose Xtravaganza and Salim Gauwloos, were in attendance for the emotional reunion and buzzy afterparty.
