THE UNLIKELY STORY OF THE LESBIANS FIRST FRIDAY @ qFLIX Worcester 2019
Directed by Cody Stickels, 1h 12min, Documentary, 2019, USA
Directed by Kathryn L. Beranich, 1h 2min, Documentary, 2019, USA, English.
In the 1980's, a group calling itself First Friday sprung fully formed from the imaginations of a group of lesbians living in the small city of Roanoke, Virginia. Some of the women were locals and some moved to the Roanoke Valley for employment. It was the Reagan era and homosexuals were vilified, especially in the Bible Belt. Spurred on by the pure serendipity of finding each other, the group created safe space, threw fantastic events and grew a community of lasting friendships, all in the shadow of the Moral Majority. Shared by women who were there, THE UNLIKELY STORY OF THE LESBIANS OF FIRST FRIDAY is a poignant piece of lesbian history.
