Christine in the Cutting Room: A Queer Multimedia Event At Playground

Posted By on Fri, Feb 8, 2013 at 3:40 PM

A queer multimedia project and booze sound like a good mix for a Wednesday night.

February's Show & Tell at Playground Bar & Lounge, on Wednesday, Feb. 13, will feature a multimedia project that tells the story of Christine Jorgensen who became a celebrity after getting a sex change in 1952.

Dr. Susan Stryker, associate professor of Gender and Women's Studies and director of the Institute for LGBT Studies, will present excerpts from her newest film, Christine in the Cutting Room. It’s about the remarkable life of Christine Jorgensen, who underwent a sex change in 1952, and became an international celebrity, actress and filmmaker. No ordinary documentary, it’s a multi-media project with electronica club music and video wallpaper.

Here's the trailer to the project:

The UA ConfluenCenter for Creative Inquiry has been hosting lectures at Playground Bar & Lounge the second Wednesday of every month since September. Rather than having a wasted Wednesday, consider enjoying some casual drinking and intellectual thinking with them.
