As a film student at New York University, Jennie Livingston had a chance encounter with a group of young gay men voguing in Washington Square Park. Livingston’s groundbreaking 1990 documentary chronicles drag ball culture and the African-American, Latino, gay and transgender communities involved in elaborate runway competitions. In 2016, the film was selected for preservation by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically or aesthetically significant.” The McNay screens the influential doc in conjunction with the forthcoming exhibition “Transamerica/n: Gender, Identity, Appearance Today.”
