Pride Picks Vol. II

We’ll be at this weekend’s BBQ hosted by our friends from St. Albert Pride! So drop by and say hello as we’re really excited to tell you all about our eclectic and relevant LGTBQ collection, free Library membership and more!

Paris Is Burning

We’d sure love to have this film in our collection, but it’s proving to be a hard DVD/Blu-Ray to come by. Anyway, here is a great YouTube link to watch on of the most thought provoking and alluring docs of the ’90s.

The Normal Heart

A film drama that tells the dramatic, poignant and often-exasperating story of the early days of the HIV-AIDS crisis in New York City in the early ’80s, taking an unflinching look at the nation’s sexual politics as gay activists and their allies in the medical community fight to expose the truth about the burgeoning epidemic to a city and nation in denial.
