Nat Taylor Tuesdays presents Phillip Pike’s Our Dance of Revolution
September 22, 2020

Join us for our first iteration of this year’s Nat Taylor Tuesday, with an online screening of Phillip Pike’s Our Dance of Revolution!

“Phillip Pike is an emerging documentary filmmaker. As a graduate of McGill University’s Faculty of Law, Phillip’s journey of personal and professional discovery has taken him from a career creating change as a community activist and human rights lawyer to a career creating change through storytelling as an independent documentary filmmaker.”

“Our Dance of Revolution tells the story of how Black queer folks in Toronto faced every adversity, from invisibility to police brutality, and over a four-decade span rose up to become a vibrant, triple-snap-fierce community.”

Please join us for this free screening.
