Birds of Prey

Series: Queer Horror

This is part of Feminist March 2024

QUEER HORROR celebrates Feminist March and Carla Rossi's birthday with BIRDS OF PREY (2020)! Hosted by Portland's premier drag clown Carla Rossi, this birthday celebration opens with a preshow tribute to Carla's favorite clown queen Harley Quinn, sponsored by Double Mountain Brewery and Cidery!

Produced by Margot Robbie and directed by Cathy Yan, BIRDS OF PREY AND THE FANTABULOUS EMANCIPATION OF HARLEY QUINN stars Robbie as the queer psychiatrist-turned-antihero, right on the heels of her breakup with Mr. J—and Gotham is coming for Harley with a laundry list of grievances. But when gay crime boss Roman Sionis (Ewan McGregor) and his hench-boyfriend Victor Zsasz (a bleached-blonde Chris Messina) put a bounty on teen pickpocket Cassandra Cain (Ella Jay Basco), Harley allies with Detective Renee Montoya (Rosie Perez), chanteuse Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett-Bell), and The Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) to take back Gotham with a wave of radical femme vengeance. A frenetic, ultraviolent explosion of color, sound, wicked writing, and pitch-perfect performances, BIRDS OF PREY is the end-all Harley Quinn film: a chaotic queer fantasy in line with TANK GIRL and the funniest feminist superhero film ever made.
