Gender Troubles

Lesbian Film Night

‘Gender Troubles: The Butches’ a film by American filmmaker, Lisa Plourde
"A refreshing portrait of lesbians who want to be one thing: themselves."
Pink Apple Lesbian and Gay Film Festival, (Zurich, Switzerland)

Watch the trailer here:

Saturday 17th June 2017
6:30 for a 7pm start.
Northcote Senior Citizens Centre
18A Bent St, Northcote

A FREE event. Tea & coffee provided. BYO alcoholic, other drinks and food.

The film is just under an hour long. Stay and chat about the film, have a drink or a cuppa afterwards.
We invite you to dress up in your butch or femme outfits for this event to add a bit of fun and atmosphere. You can also dress half and half - or whatever fraction you prefer.

‘Contrary to the stereotype, butch lesbians aren’t trying to be feminine and failing. They are not going through a rebellious stage or imitating men. Rather, they are women who while being true to their own selves, may look and or act in ways that society has decided is appropriate only for men. And some people have a problem with that. 
The women portrayed in this film examine and challenge society’s assumptions about what it means to be female. Their struggles reveal how everyone, regardless of their sexual orientation, is pressured to conform and measure up to restrictive gender standards. But they also show the rewards that come when we learn to accept ourselves as we are. This is a film to celebrate butch women.’
