Gay People Princeton - Documentary Film Premiere

Friday December 13, 2019
7:00 PM

A documentary film tracing the remarkable history of Gay People Princeton, the community’s first gay rights organization, will premiere on December 13, at 7:00 PM.

Founded in 1972 by undergraduates, the Gay Alliance of Princeton gathered Princeton University students, workers and faculty, local townspeople, and greater community members to come out and declare their identity. After two years, Gay People Princeton, a separate organization for the community, emerged out of it, forging a way for the future. This event spotlights a new archive of materials held at the Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice that captures the history of Gay People Princeton. The film was developed by early member of the Gay Alliance of Princeton, Frank Mahood, by compiling interviews, original images, and recollections of members of these early gay rights groups.

Location: Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice, 21 Wiggins Street. Registration requested, as space is limited: www.princetonhistory.org or (609) 921-6748 x102.

In this holiday favorite brought to you each year by Kelsey Theatre and Dance Connection, young ballerinas dance a narrated and abridged version of Tchaikovsky’s beloved ballet. Through music and dance, they tell the story of young Clara, who sneaks downstairs on Christmas Eve to play with her favorite present from Uncle Drosselmeyer – a Nutcracker. Alone with her toy, she is suddenly confronted by the menacing Mouse King! Saved by her sweet Nutcracker Prince, she is whisked away to the Land of The Sweets. Awaiting her are the Snow Queen and her king, along with snow fairies, dancing sugar plums and toy soldiers.
