LGBTQ+ FRIDAY
at the
HISTORIC ZUKOR THEATRE

Tucked away at 35th Ave and 35th Street in Astoria.

Filmmakers around the world are asking
many of the same questions:
How do we love ourselves? How do we love others?
Am I lovable? Am I capable of loving?
Join us for entire evening of incredible films
focused on
knowing, being, wondering, living.
