WAYS IN BEING GAY : WAYS IN/BETWEEN GENDER presents

Cruel and Unusual

from the film  Cruel and Unusual Benefit for Buffalo Queer and Trans Prison Solidarity Project
Prisons decide where to place inmates based on their genitalia, not their gender identity, often denying medical and psychological treatment. Cruel and Unusual (Janet Baus, Dan Hunt, Reid Williams, 2006, 66 minutes) asks if the punishment for their crime is indeed cruel and unusual? Shot over three years, this documentary challenges our ideas about gender and justice. Benefit for Buffalo Queer and Trans Prison Solidarity Project, a new organization committed to education about our prison systems and how they affect the LGBTQI community. Meetings are Tuesday at 5pm at 14 Allen St; for more info email: Buffaloqtpsp@gmail.com
