Sundays at Café Tabac - The Podcast

Queer oral history and personal coming out stories recounted by members of the LGBTQIA community who are featured in the upcoming documentary film Sundays at Cafe Tabac. It tells the story of an unforgettable weekly salon for women through which a new voice, visibility and power erupted. Set in New York City’s East Village in the early ‘90s, against the backdrop of a highly charged moment in history, at the height of AIDS activism and the birth of Third Wave Feminism, when the so-called “lesbian chic” movement was catapulted into the spotlights and headlines of the mainstream. What emerges is a formidable story of what happens when a community comes together in unity, and how that fuels a concurrent movement in the expansion and expression of individuality.
