Chicago is known for being a progressive metropolis with ample, LGBTQ history. However, the stories of the black women who contributed to that history are regularly overlooked. BQHC is a film series about visibility, celebration, and education for the present and next generation to come.” Programming will be from 6:00-9:30PM.
