Halston, Frédéric Tcheng's absorbing, exhaustive documentary about the charmed — then ill-fated — life and business of the superstar gay American fashion designer of the same name, should be the final word on what the visionary accomplished.

What are you doing Sunday, May 5?

If you can get to NYC, you should be joining us at a screening of the Madonna-fan doc Like a Prayer, directed by Oxana Nabokova.

The screening is taking place at  7 p.m. at the AMC Empire 25 on W. 42nd, and everyone who attends is automatically entered to win a trip to Eurovision in Tel Aviv or a a ticket to the GLAAD Awards in NYC! (You can also enter by donating $45 to the film's GoFundMe site, which is to raise finishing funds.) The cut-off date to be entered is April 25.

Get Tickets Here!

What is the film about? In a press release, Nabokova, who was a journalist in Russia, says:

In short, my film is about Madonna's fans, their love and devotion for the Queen, and how she inspires her fans all over the world, how she makes them stronger. It’s also about challenges that we face every single day. My film is about real life. 

There are several stories in my film, that can inspire and can be relatable to many people, whether they're Madonna fans or not.  

Check out a trailer for the event after the jump ...

And Justice For Some: WHERE JUSTICE ENDS Trailer Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2019-04-03 at 10.39.25 AMThe stories in the trailer are harrowing. (Image via video still)

Broadway's Brian Stokes Mitchell narrates the upcoming feature documentary Where Justice Ends, which details the treatment trans women face in the federal prison system when they're forced to be housed with cisgender men.

This is why I cringe every single time a supposedly liberal person makes a brutish (and very cliché) comment about a criminal that “he'll be popular in prison.” Prison should be a place where people are incarcerated, not where they are raped or attacked.
