The Torch Song Trilogy

October 8 @ 6:00 pm

Torch Song Trilogy (1988)

In and Out’s film series presents Torch Song Trilogy on October 8th at 6:00 PM at The Vashon Theatre.  This film is based on Harvey Fierstein’s play of the same name. The In and Out film series presents this film because of its historical content and because in 1988 this film was significant in bringing gay drama to a wider audience.  The film tells Arnold Beckoff’s (Harvey Fierstein) story of looking for love and acceptance, but as a gay man working as a female impersonator in 1970s New York City, neither come easily.  The film portrays struggles of early LGBTQ people’s basic identity and the simple basic on needs of deserving to be loved and parents’ acceptance.
