Social Events

FREE MOVIE SOCIALS and POTLUCK

The movie nights were such a hit last year we thought it would be good to do them again. These are free events like the monthly potlucks integral to the founding of LAGPA. It’s fun and a chance to socialize in a relaxed gay-friendly environment. All are welcome. Chuck has an 8’x6’ video screen with surround-sound system. The most he can hold is 14 people. RSVP soon via email.

7 PM dinner (pot-luck) and about 8 PM movie
Held at Chuck’s apartment in Palms/Culver City area.
3722 Bagley Ave. #19, Los Angeles, CA 90034
Parking on street is difficult. Look for apartment with Christmas lights on the balcony. You can’t miss it. (I have a thing about Christmas lights on all year round—go figure.)

A Fantastic Woman God's Own Country Call Me By Your Name

April 28 “A Fantastic Woman”
MFT themed movie but all persons are welcomed.

A FANTASTIC WOMAN (Una Mujer Fantástica, 2018) Somewhere in Santiago at a dimly-lit nightclub, Orlando, the kindly and well-off owner of a textile company, locks eyes with Marina, a hopeful singer and the roughly half-his-age love of his life. But, unfortunately, after Marina's birthday celebration and a night of passion, Orlando falls gravely ill--and by the following morning--he dies in hospital. In the wake of her companion's untimely death, Marina will soon realize that, from now on, everything is brought into question: her involvement in Orlando's death, their unconventional relationship; and above all, her right to mourn her beloved deceased. In the end, what was Marina's crime; a deed so hideous that would rob a fantastic woman of her respect, her dignity, and ultimately, her identity? First Chilean movie to win an Academy Award for Best Foreign Film. In Spanish with subtitles.
