Paris is Burning, Trans Culture in 1980's New York

Cheryl covers the transgender movie classic Paris is Burning over at Lost in Transgender:

“In 1990 I was 21 and at the point in my life where I had begun the long road of self discovery of what it means to be trans. It was also the year that Jennie Livingston released her cult documentary movie 'Paris is Burning.' I remember it being aired on BBC2 as part of their Arena documentary series. The Arena team made an introduction to the film stating that Madonna's hit single Vogue had taken it's roots from the culture existing within the underground gay night clubs of New York City.”

A safe place for discussing gender variance!
