It’s Movie Time — Paris Is Burning
Siouxsie finally is getting around to watching Paris Is Burning.
As ganked from Wiki:
Filmed in the mid-to-late 1980s, it chronicles the ball culture of New York City and theAfrican American, Latino gay and transgender community involved in it. Many [who] consider Paris Is Burning to be an invaluable documentary of the end of the “Golden Age” of New York City drag balls, as well as a thoughtful exploration of race, class, and gender in America.
Bonus Movie Trivia: Three years after the film was released, one of the interview subjects died from AIDS. While cleaning out her apartment, a mummified corpse was found among her belongings. The body had been there at least 20 years and had a gunshot wound to the head.
