Check It at Filmfest DC
The documentary Check It, that tells the story of LGBT youth in the Trinidad neighborhood who band together to form a gay gang for self-defense, is playing at the E Street Cinema as part of Filmfest DC. The website was telling me earlier they were sold out, but they now appear to have tickets available.

Historic Preservation 101/201
The DC Preservation League is holding two upcoming classes on historic preservation at Gallaudet University (800 Florida Ave). The courses, which appear to be geared towards real estate professionals, will be held from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Friday, May 19 at the Kellogg Conference Center.
Historic Preservation 101 provides a brief history of Washington’s historic preservation movement, advice on navigating permitting for buildings in historic districts, and tips on historic preservation funding.
Historic Preservation 201 delves deeper into subjects such as the process of designating historic landmarks and districts, renovation of historic properties, the historic preservation review process, and integration of historic resources with new construction.
The three-hour programs costs $60. The classes are free (and offers Continuing Education Credit) to DC Real Estate Licensees and DC Real Estate Appraiser Licensees with active license statuses. ANC Commissioners can also attend for no charge. Please note that you can sign up for either 101, or 201, but NOT both.
