PARIS IS BURNING
The Scion Independent Film Series is bringing one of my favorite films, Paris Is Burning, to Atlanta for a special screening on Thursday, Nov. 29, 8 p.m. at Center Stage. This documentary by Jennie Livingston follows the lives of members of NYC's "fashion houses," where Madonna got her idea for the song "Vogue." Fashion houses compete to see which is the most "real,"and also act as surrogate families for gay or transgendered people rejected by their families. It's moving and funny and a glimpse inside a fabulous world. If you're in Atlanta and want to attend the screening, click on this link to RSVP.
