On the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, Reel Q: Pittsburgh LGBTQ+ Film Festival and The Warhol present Before Stonewall, an award-winning documentary film that offers a fascinating, fast-paced history of the LGBTQ+ community in America through historical footage and revealing interviews. Co-director and producer Robert Rosenberg will appear on-screen for a Skype Q&A following the film. Afterwards, Jellyfish (DJs Steph Tsong, Ricky Moslen, and Adam Shuck) will host a late-night, queer dance party in the museum’s entrance space, weaving together Italo Disco, New Wave, and Post-Punk tracks with video and visual collage. A cash bar will be available. Registration is required.

  • Doors open at 7:30 p.m.
