Out at the Roxy

Being Thunder

Sponsored by:

Out at the Roxy celebrates the power and Pride of LGBTQ+ people by removing the door from the celluloid closet. 


Sherenté, a Two Spirit Genderqueer teenager from Rhode Island's Narragansett tribe, performs in dance competitions at annual regional powwows of New England tribes. There is no formal rule which prohibits Two Spirit Genderqueer people from competing in a category different from their birth gender. Wearing female fancy shawl regalia, Sherenté dances with joy and beauty. Behind the scenes, tribal leaders manipulate Sherenté's scores or disqualify them outright because of their belief in traditional binary gender roles. Blindsided by ongoing dishonesty and deception, Sherenté continues to perform in spite of insensitive behavior by tribal leaders and others in their community. Sherenté's enduring courage and self-respect are met with an outpouring of support from family, powwow attendees, and fellow competitors.
