Queer Book Club Movie Night: Check It

Monday, June 17, 2019, 7 p.m.

Queer Book Club is a small but enthusiastic community that has been meeting monthly to discuss queer-themed books spanning numerous genres. This month, we’ll be taking a summer break from reading and instead screening Check It, a documentary about a local gang composed of gay and transgender youth.

This film festival favorite follows a group of African American gay and transgender youth in one of Washington D.C.'s most violent neighborhoods. After being subjected to constant torment and assault, the group formed their own gang for camaraderie and protection.
