Feminist & Queer Happy Hour Event

By Charlotte Robinson, February 16, 2019
With a little over a week to go until the 91st Academy Awards celebrate women in film on Tuesday February 19th at “Feminist & Queer Happy Hour with Movies” a networking & film event that takes place at Remnant Brewing 2 Bow Market Way in Somerville, MA from 6P to 8:30P. This is a fundraiser for the Wicked Queer: Boston’s LGBT Film Festival now in its 35th year & runs March 28th to April 7th. There will be a screening of two short films, "an (un)natural birth" & Oscar-nominated "Marguerite". Co-hosts Jamie & Jasmine describes Feminist&Queer Happy Hour stating, "Networking is hard & weird. Meeting casually in a no pressure environment like this happy hour is a way to network as people who care about the same things. Ideally, there would also be cats, but I haven't figured out how to make that part happen yet. The event is free but we're asking for a suggested donation of $5 which will enter you in the raffle to win two pairs of tickets to a movie at the upcoming Wicked Queer: The Boston LGBT Film Festival. All proceeds will go to support the Wicked Queer.” Directed by Laura Kingwell “an (un)natural birth” is a 16 minute short & deeply personal documentary in which filmmaker Kingwell explores her anxieties about becoming a parent as she & her partner Mairi search online for a sperm donor. “Marguerite” directed by Marianne Farley is about Marguerite, a diabetic woman in her seventies who has been getting daily visits from Rachel her home health nurse. Discovering Rachel’s homosexuality plunges Marguerite into her own unacknowledged desires & unfulfilled longing runs 20 minutes.
