Before there was an internet, young lesbians in Albuquerque connected and found each other in public using a covert sonic signal. A documentary film celebrating that part of New Mexico’s Latina LGBTQ culture premieres in Albuquerque on Friday, Sept. 20. The film acknowledges and preserves a mostly unknown piece of local history.

"Pin Up: The Movie" explores the growing subculture of the modern pin up girl and the women who inspire her. In this interview, Megan Kamerick talks with filmmaker Kathleen Ryan and pin up girl Linh Sellars, aka Delicious Ruckus, about how women are using pin up culture to explore their own power and identity. It's showing on January 10 at 2 p.m. at Aux Dog Theatre at 3011 Monte Vista Dr. NE as part of Albuquerque Comic Con.

The photograph "Migrant Mother" is one of the most recognized and captivating images in the world. The image has represented the suffering of America's Great Depression. Yet few know the story, struggles and impressive body of work of the woman behind the camera: Dorothea Lange.
