The Vashon Heritage Museum’s In and Out exhibit in partnership with the Vashon Senior Center, Voice of Vashon, and Island GreenTech presents the film Better Than Chocolate on November 19th at 6:00 PM at the Vashon Theatre. Better Than Chocolate follows a young lesbian named Maggi living in Vancouver, Maggie works in a book store which sells titles about the LGBTQ + community, including guides to safe sex. With this material having been deemed obscene, we witness the prejudice and discrimination towards the LGBTQ community in the era of the AIDs crisis. The outcome of this discrimination impacts LGBTQ people in their daily lives. The film depicts the 80’s, a historical time in the Lesbian community of Vancouver, BC, centered around Commercial Drive.
