PRIDE AT THE ATHENA

Celebrating Pride Through Film

This June, celebrate Pride with a new and exciting film series — I LOVE GAY 90’S.

We are going back in time a few decades…to the GAY 90’s! Cellphones were only for the rich and Ellen was about to make history with her 1997 “The Puppy Episode”. It was a different world and there was much less representation of LGBTQ+ identities in Hollywood. But the 90’s were a pivotal time that paved the way for representation in the mainstream. Our series features titles that empower LGBTQ+ characters, and changed the landscape of cinema for good.

“This series is DA BOMB!”

“I didn’t get tix yet. MY BAD!”

“Did you know there will be some PHAT raffle prizes?”

“I’m gonna be looking FLY!”

Put on your best 90’s gear and join us for trivia, raffles, drinks and a really fab movie party!

This series is sponsored by Ohio University Pride Center, Ohio University Women’s Center, Ohio University Women’s Gender and Sexuality Studies, College of Health Sciences and Professions, Women of Color in Athens, City of Athens, College of Fine Arts, Arts for OHIO and the Ohio Arts Council.
