Everyone welcome. Allies welcome.

► GLEN OR GLENDA: wildly considered the worst film ever . . . it is an exploitation film created by Ed Wood, and featuring Bela Lugosi. The film is a docudrama about cross-dressing and semi-autobiographical. Wood himself was a crossdresser, and the film is a plea for tolerance.

“Glen or Glenda” tells two stories. One is about Glen, who secretly dresses as a woman but is afraid to tell his fiancée. The other is about Alan, a “pseudohermaphrodite” who undergoes a painful operation to become a woman. The film delivers earnest (even if incoherent) lectures on understanding. A cult classic with great conviction.

Campy with comic appeal and definitely a B-movie beyond the mainstream – come question what is has to say.
