Queens at Heart restoration

Film historian Jenni Olson discovered a badly-damaged film print of a 1967 documentary that showed pre-Stonewall Manhattan ball culture. It is some of the only color footage ever found, and no negative was ever discovered. The Outfest Legacy Project in partnership with the UCLA Film & Television Archive did a full restoration of this historically important document.

Joanne Herman donated major major funds to make this happen. I will always be grateful to her for her leadership!
