05月17日 周二 18:30  [国际不再恐同日特别放映]   纪录片《巴黎在燃烧》








Tuesday, May 17, 18:30  [IDAHOT Special Screening] Paris Is Burning



5月17日的国际不再恐同日(International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia,简称IDAHOT)是目前公认的国际LGBT权利纪念日,源于1990年5月17日,世界卫生组织将同性恋从当时的精神病名册中除名。全世界有130多个国家在这一天前后举行相关纪念活动,旨在呼吁政策制定者、意见领袖、社会运动、公众与媒体等关注LGBTI团体受到的在肉体上及精神上的暴力及不公平对待。为了支持国际不再恐同日,上海美国中心将会放映经典纪录片《巴黎在燃烧》,该片聚焦了1980年代纽约的变装皇后文化。影片放映后,会有一位外交官带领观众就美国的LGBTI相关话题进行讨论。 


On May 17, 1990, the World Health Organization decided to declassify homosexuality as a mental disorder. To acknowledge this decision, LGBTI activists designated May 17 at the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOT) in order to draw the attention of policymakers, opinion leaders, social movements, the public and the media to the violence and discrimination experienced by LGBTI people internationally. Now, IDAHOT is celebrated in more than 130 countries.  In support of IDAHOT, the US Consulate in Shanghai will screen the award-winning documentary Paris is Burning, which focuses on drag queen culture in 1980s New York City. After the screening, a US diplomat will lead a discussion on LGBTI issues in the United States. 


(影片片长76分钟,英文对白,英文字幕。The documentary is 76 minutes long and is in English with English subtitles.)
