Reel Queer Film Series Presents "Dark and Lovely, Soft and Free"


The Reel Queer Film Series at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center presents a free screening of "Dark and Lovely, Soft and Free" on November 14th at 6:30 p.m. A talkback with Dr. Sirry Alang and dessert reception will follow.

"Dark and Lovely, Soft and Free" follows a network of queer hairstylists and their friends through small towns, rural areas, and urban peripheries in South Africa. A project of the Gay and Lesbian Archives of South Africa, the 2000 film was linked to co-director Graeme Reid's doctoral research on hair salons as gay social and cultural spaces.
