Open Love NY presents Poly Movie Night, a FREE series of feature films that focus on the portrayal of consensual / ethical non-monogamy in cinema. This month we’ll be at our regular venue, the Bureau of General Services—Queer Division.

On August 7th please join us for a viewing of Shortbus (2006), written and directed by John Cameron Mitchell and starring Sook-Yin Lee, Peter Stickles, and PJ DeBoy.

We’ll meet at 6:30 pm at the Bureau (in room 210 of The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center at 208 West 13th Street) for pre-screening socializing and start the movie at 7 pm. The event is free, although a $10 suggested donation to help fund future events is much appreciated.

They all meet at a sex club called Shortbus looking for answers to their sexual and romantic dilemmas and encountering a host of interesting characters. Content Warning: attempted suicide. Running time: 1 hour 41 minutes.
