Various times

An uncensored show featuring cult film legend Mink Stole. The first and only documentary telling the story of the inspiring women at the forefront of the global AIDS movement. A behind-the-scenes story about 13 transgender people producing a play in Hollywood.

These and other stories will hit the big screen when Reel Q presents the second annual Pittsburgh Underground Film Festival (PUFF). Spotlighting films by women and people of color, this year’s lineup will explore issues such as racism, feminism, gentrification and identity, and will highlight creative queer communities from around the globe.

PUFF opens with flair when iconic underground star Mink Stole — known for starring in John Waters’ cult classics — teams up with San Francisco drag filmmaker Peaches Christ to host the hilarious live cabaret show, “Idol Worship.”

Additional highlights include the documentaries “Nothing Without Us: The Women Who Will End AIDS” and “In Full Bloom.”

Don’t miss the screening of “Queercore: How to Punk a Revolution,” followed by a free dance party at P Town with local DJs Jellyfish. The “pay-what-you-can” screening of “Expanding Gender: Youth Out Front” will include a free burrito lunch provided by Chipotle.
