Queer Abolitionist Drive-in Film Series: Camp

July 30 @ 8:00 pm - 11:59 pm

Queer Abolitionist Drive-in Film Series

Ronika McClain, Christee Imogen Henry, and Alden DiCamillo, in affiliation with Southerners on New Ground, Athens Cultural Affairs Committee, Rabbit Hole Studios, Athens Mutual Aid Network, ATHICA, and Lemon Drop Studio present a series of films curated by Ronika McClain to be shown outdoors via a drive-in theater provided by Rabbit Hole Studio. These films present the history and nuance of queer abolition of systems of policing, incarceration, and state-driven debilitation.

Location: Rabbit Hole Studio Outdoor Parking and Garden area
1001 Winterville Rd, Athens, GA 30605

All events free of charge, but slots for parking must be reserved online at athensmutualaid.net or bit.ly/QueerAbolitionist

Camp (July 30th): 8 PM – 12 AM
But I’m A Cheerleader (Jamie Babbitt), Hairspray (John Waters), Bound (Wachowski Sisters)
These three films are “bad” but “good” —campy and fabulous. Although the Metropolitan Museum of Art may have something different to say about camp (via its 2019 Gala), it has always been a queer way of lampooning the straight world we all have to navigate. Camp is bad taste used for good use by weird people. It’s dry, dark humor clothed in neon.
