Scope and Content
From sleeve: "On June 24, 1973, an arsonist set fire to the Up Stairs Lounge, ultimately killing 32 people. The primary suspect was never charged with the crime. For 43 years, it was considered 'the largest gay mass murder in U.S. history'. Not just a stagnant exposition of facts, UPSTAIRS INFERNO brings humanity into the headlines. With exclusive interviews from survivors, family/friends of victims and witnesses, along with long lost artifacts, newsreel footage and photos, UPSTAIRS INFERNO is the most comprehensive film about the fire and its aftermath." Written, produced, directed, and edited by Robert L. Camina Cinematography by Nick Morr Narrated by Christopher Rice

Scope and Content
"With 30 years' experience hosting shows, Armand Monroe introduces us to the world of female impersonators in Montreal. They are performers, distinct from transvestites, hookers and Halloween revelers. Armand and others tell stories about their relationships with parents, with spouses, and with lovers, and about discovering their love for female impersonation. An aging, plump performer is interviewed; one person discusses her sex change operation. Natch Taylor, artistic director for Les Ballet Trockadero, talks about parents' experiences coming for the first time to see their sons dance. All is placid except when a film actor discusses appearing in a gay-bashing scene, which we see." (IMDb) Written and directed by Lois Siegel With Derek McKinnon, Armand Monroe, et al.
