    Shakedown Director Leilah Weinraub

    Shakedown Director Leilah Weinraub

    Director Leilah Weinraub joins Mireille Miller-Young (Feminist Studies, UCSB) for a conversation about Weinraub’s 2018 documentary Shakedown, a film that documents the L.A.-based underground black-lesbian strip club of the same name. Weinraub explains how she discovered the club and her decade-long project of capturing the experience of Shakedown on film. The talk also includes discussion of black ownership and labor, the visibility of black identities and sexualities, gentrification in the aftermath of historic riots, and the fragility of contingent cultural spaces under the dual pressures of over-policing and the politics of respectability.

As researchers, participants and healthcare providers explain here, the three CHRP-supported studies across the state use different techniques, such as providing PrEP and hormonal therapy together at a single clinic visit, offering in-depth pharmacokinetic analyses on how the two treatments interact, or creating a custom text messaging app to communicate with providers and offer peer support. Information on how to enroll in the University of California-affiliated studies is included. Series: "UCTV Prime" [Public Affairs] [Health and Medicine] [Show ID: 33176]
