Gallery 400 is pleased to partner with the UIC Gender and Sexuality Center, Quare Square Collective, and the national organization Sistah Sinema to launch Sistah Sinema Chicago, a monthly moderated film event focused on queer women of color.

Quare Square Collective, established in 2013 on Chicago’s South Side, is a community-based organization that supports LGBTQ artists of color in the Midwest through collaborative projects, marketing, publications and performances.

Sistah Sinema Chicago screenings are held at Gallery 400 and will be followed by a moderated discussion to foster dialogue examining the struggles and opportunities unique to queer women of color. All screenings are at 2pm.

Admission is $10 for the general public and free for the UIC community (with I-card). Snacks and non-alcoholic beverages will be provided.
