Queer Movie Night – The Movies That Made Us Gay!

Do you like going out to the movies but wish it was a more intimate affair, with no kids running around and no stale popcorn stuck to your seat, where cuddling was not only accepted but encouraged, and every movie screened was a winning slice of queer cinema gold? Because we had exactly the same thought and decided to do something about it! On June 28th, from 7 pm to 1 am, you’re invited to Wicked Eden’s Queer Movie Night.

We’ll be screening not one, but TWO iconic queer classics – the movies that made us laugh, the movies that made us cry, the movies that made us gay – that we can’t wait to enjoy all over again with you. Whether it’s the sass of “To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar”, the flamboyant charm of “The Birdcage”, the rebellious spirit of “But I’m a Cheerleader”, or something else entirely, we’ll be showcasing the movies that helped us proudly embrace our queerness.

First movie screens at 7:30pm
Second movie screens at 10pm

So grab your tickets while they’re still available! Bring some blankets, bring your lover, bring your friend, and get comfortable for an evening of great movies and better company. We’ll provide the entertainment, the cosy space (ideal for cuddles and snuggles, if the mood strikes), with tasty snacks and non-alcoholic drinks available to purchase. You just do you, boo.

Note: While we’ll never screen a movie we don’t think you’ll love, we think it’s important to note that like many movies, TV shows, and media in general, queer cinema is not immune to being a product of its time, and may depict certain attitudes that we as a society have thankfully grown beyond, or scenes of violence that might be triggering to some. We don’t want this to put you off attending in any way, but part of curating a safe space is giving you as much information as you need to make the best choices you can make for you. We hope to see you there!

When it comes to attire, anything goes at Wicked Eden, we want you to feel comfortable and in the mood to have an adventure! Wicked Eden is a place where you can wear as much or as little as you desire. We want you to always feel comfortable expressing yourself in whatever ways you desire. We encourage you to go outside your comfort zone with festive, outrageous, or amazing clothing that you never get a chance to wear anywhere else. 


We LOVE volunteers! Join our team of community volunteers, and you will find new friends, a support system and a tight knit center of empowerment. Once you have obtained membership as above, please check out the volunteering section of The Autonomy Project website.

By volunteering with us you will have the opportunity to make a meaningful impact on people’s lives, but you will also get perks such as discounted or free access to our events and classes, and most importantly, collaborative input in what we do here. Your ideas are important to us, and as a volunteer, we want you to feel like you’re part of our community: one that celebrates who you are and supports your journey.



Our community thrives in a space where countless delightful interactions could happen, but none are obligated to occur. Think of it as “high possibility, low expectations.” Outside of our general requirements of respect, you are under no obligation to interact with anyone in any particular way. This makes our space ideal for new faces and seasoned community members alike.


Our events aren’t the product of one person hosting a party for pay; they’re the result of a community coming together and creating something new. Everyone who attends is expected to co-create: money, time, energy, enthusiasm, work, intention, example, concern and/or awareness. Have ideas, games, art, music to share? Want to bring them to life with us?


Our gatherings are magical because of trust. We fiercely protect each member’s privacy, encourage honest risk communication, and take diligent care of our shared environments. It’s our collective respect and integrity that fortify this safe space.


Upholding consent goes beyond preventing harm; it’s about affirming everyone’s freedom to fully and joyfully agree to their interactions. It’s through this affirmation that our spaces thrive with genuine, unreserved participation.


We’re committed to inclusivity. Our community is a tapestry of individuals from diverse racial, ethnic, and social backgrounds, including all gender identities and expressions. We encourage everyone to engage with empathy and curiosity, always asking rather than assuming someone’s identity or preferences.

Our space is and always will be wheelchair accessible, with multiple spaces for varying sensory needs.


No refunds will be given on ticket purchases. Address is provided to confirmed ticket holders after purchase. Wicked Eden is located on the south side of Columbus, approximately 10 minutes from downtown, and is one block away from a COTA bus stop.


Wicked Eden is operated by The Autonomy Project, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to education, community building, and empowerment for individuals within the alternative sexuality community, sex work industry, and the LGBTQIA+ community. Our mission is to create a safe and inclusive space where individuals can freely express their sexuality and gender identity without fear of discrimination, judgment, or violence.
