On the race, class, gender, sexual orientation, request, it might be of
interest that the Philosophy Dept at Denison University, of which I am a
member, will show PARIS IS BURNING as its First Year film this year.
Although this is a documentary it does raise every issue specified in
Chella's request and there is a certain narrative strand to it.  An
excellent film, hope you will check it out.
