May 17 at the Queens Museum of Art, CINEMAROSA—Queens only queer film series— celebrates its fifth anniversary with Pentagram, a screening of short films featuring special guests, fans, groupies, stockers, and the whole CINEMAROSA family of queer Queens locals and NYC extended family. Expect the unexpected and look for the surprises as we blow (literally) yes, blow five pink luscious candles and bathe in pink champagne. Come prepared!
