Fourth Annual Transgender Law and Policy Conference - for info call 723-8368. Women's Network-Film Night: "Forbidden Love: The Unashamed Stones of Lesbian Lives". "Taking it's cue from those campy lesbian pulp novels of the 50s and 60s, 'Forbidden Love' cleverly frames documentary interviews with its own pulp novel romance. Against a fascinating backdrop of book covers, tabloid headlines, archival photographs and film clips, the women interviewed in Forbidden Love paint a portrait of lesbian sexuality and survival during the sexual dark ages of the 1950s and 60s. Accenting the compelling and often hilarious stories of these brave women is a fictional drama recreating a young girl's coming out and erotic seduction. An interview with author Ann Bannon and the reminiscences of the women who read these books brings to life the contrast between their actual experiences and the way they were fictionalized in popular lesbian pulp novels". This film was the winner of the GLAAD Award for Outstanding Documentary.The Women's Network meets on 2nd & 4th Wednesdays, 7- 9pm at the Montrose Counseling Center, 701 Richmond, Room 15.
