In 2006 in a gay-friendly neighborhood in New York City, a group of African-American lesbians were violently threatened by a man on the street. After fighting back, the women were charged with gang assault and attempted murder. Three pleaded guilty to avoid a trial, but the remaining four claimed self-defense and maintained their innocence. The documentary “Out in the Night” tells the story of these women, who the tabloids first dubbed the “Killer Lesbians” and who later became known as the “New Jersey Four.” The Out of the Closet and Onto the Screen series will host a free public showing of the film on Tuesday, Nov. 3, at 7 p.m. in Textor 101.
