Jerusalem troupe in Chicago June 18

A Wider Bridge—the LGBTQ advocacy group that aims to connections between the Israeli and North American LGBTQ communities—announced the U.S. tour of c.a.t.a.m.o.n., a Jerusalem dance group.

Arthur Slepian, executive director of Wider Bridge, said in a statement, "Through arts and culture that challenge the boundaries of religion, race, gender, and sexuality, these young artists are cultivating a new and hopeful environment of pluralism, diversity and understanding in a city that has seen much tension and division."

The troupe will stop in Chicago on Saturday, June 18, at Canvas, 2313 W. North Ave., at 6:30 p.m.

Tickets are $15-$18; visit http://bit.ly/1NtzEm9.

Chicago jazz singer Elaine Dame will host a benefit concert, "Jazz for Women: An Evening of Music and Fellowship," on Sunday, June 5, 6-9 p.m., at Southport and Irving ( SIP ), 4000 N. Southport Ave.

Sponsored in part by WDCB Jazz and Blues Radio, there will be a $10 suggested donation at the door and raffles throughout the evening, with continuous music from over 40 local jazz artists. SIP will donate 10 percent of the evening's proceeds to the Chicago Foundation for Women.

'Queer Kings & Queens' screenings in June

The Queer Film Society, in association with The Chicago Public Library, is presenting "Queer Kings & Queens," a free series celebrating Victorian-era LGBT movies in honor of Gay Pride Month.

The screenings will take place at the Bezazian branch of the Chicago Public Library, 1226 W. Ainslie St., at 6 p.m. ( Doors open at 5:30 p.m. )

This series contains films with mature subject matter. Viewer discretion is advised.

Screenings are:

—Monday, June 6: Queen Christina ( 1933 ): Bisexual screen legend Greta Garbo is at the height of her ironic beauty in this MGM classic, as the queen of Sweden, the ruler who wants to remain "a bachelor girl" but who finds herself drawn into an illicit romance.

—Monday, June 13: Edward II ( 1991 ): Queer activist/filmmaker Derek Jarman's poetic and highly erotic biography of England's gay king—and this is Tilda Swinton's breakthrough movie.

—Monday, June 20: The Girl King ( 2015 ): This is a widely acclaimed adaptation of the Queen Christina story—this time with the lesbian romance intact.

For more information on this series and other LGBTQ-themed events throughout June at the Chicago Public Library, visit ChiPubLib.org .
