Aurora Brachman's Spring quarter film premieres on NYT Op-Docs

Every night during the Covid-19 lockdown, hundreds of people from around the world gathered in a massive queer dance party known as ‘Club Quarantine’

Aurora Brachman's 1st year Spring quarter film is featured on The New York Times OpDocs. Watch the film and read Brachman's article: Every Night in Quarantine, I Danced With Hundreds of Strangers. Below is a snipped:

As a young queer person coming into my own identity, gay clubs have been my refuge. In college I would frequent a predominantly Latinx gay club in Pomona, Calif., called 340. There I experienced a sense of ease and safety that I could not find elsewhere. My friends and I grew into ourselves in that club. When the pandemic began, I found similar comfort in Club Quarantine. Historically, nightlife has been one of the few safe spaces for the queer community. It is no surprise that in this time of devastation, queer people have once again sought community in the club, albeit a virtual one.
