Film Screening for LGBTQIA+ History Month. Screaming Queens:The Riot at Compton's Cafeteria tells a forgotten story of a riot against the social oppression of queer people in 1966 San Francisco,three years before the famous gay riot at New York's Stonewall Inn.

The EMMY award-winning documentary Screaming Queens: The Riot at Compton's Cafeteria, tells the forgotten story of the first known collective act of militant resistance to the social oppression of queer people in the United States-a 1966 riot at a late night cafeteria in San Francisco, three years before the famous gay riot at New York's Stonewall Inn.

The film explores the experiences of those who were involved in the riot and the events leading up to it, specifically, trans women who resisted ongoing discrimination and police harassment.
