Sunday, August 4 | Hot to Trot
This award-winning documentary film goes inside the fascinating but little-known world of same-sex competitive ballroom dance and follows a small international cast of four magnetic men and women, on and off the dance floor, over a four-year period. An immersive character study–and an idiosyncratic attack on bigotry–this rousing, powerful story unfurls with the rhythms and energy of dramatic cinema. General Admission $10
This event is part of the Pillow’s annual LGBTQIA+ celebration, Pillow Pride weekend. Learn about the full schedule of events.
