Day 8: Friday, March 27

Assignment

Welcome to Quarantini: Day Eight.

Our assignment for the weekend is Giovanni’s Room, Part 2, Chapter 2.

Our discussion question is: What is the significance of the sailor in this chapter? Don’t forget to email your responses to [email protected]

And, since it’s another short chapter and people are staying in this weekend, I have a bonus assignment:

BONUS: Watch the film Screaming Queens: The Riot at Compton’s Cafeteria, directed by Professor Susan Stryker.

It’s an EMMY Award-winning documentary, just an hour long, about the little-known story of the first known act of collective, violent resistance to the social oppression of LGBTQ+ Americans – a 1966 riot in San Francisco’s impoverished Tenderloin neighborhood, three years before Stonewall.

The best part is it’s available for free on Youtube,
