1969年的石牆事件被認為是美國同性戀平權運動的起點,但當時位於曼哈頓下城的石牆,並非最早開設的地下同志夜店,也不是所有同志都會去的地方,至少非裔美籍同志不會。位於布魯克林、比石牆早開五年的「星光」才是非裔美籍同志的聚會所。在那個恐同是主流、種族歧視是家常便飯的年代,「星光」是他們唯一的避風港。走過近五十個年頭,美國同志平權運動正要到達高峰,「星光」卻因為布魯克林中區急速的仕紳化,而面臨被拆遷的命運。「星光」能否繼續閃耀照亮酷兒路?

 

Founded by an African-American for his gay community in 1962, the Starlite Lounge became a legendary safe-haven by catering to multiple generations of every race, creed, color and sexual orientation.When the survival of this black-owned LGBT institution came under threat nearly fifty years later, a passionate advocate engaged her community in a fight to save its legacy. The document of their movement explores the matrix of gay visibility, race and economics in America’s most progressive metropolis.
