One hot August night in 2006,
in a gay-friendly neighborhood of New York City, four young African-American lesbians are violently and sexually threatened by a man on the street. They defend themselves against him and are charged and convicted in the courts and in the media as a ‘Gang of Killer Lesbians’.
In activist circles they become known as The New Jersey 4. Through the lives of these young women, Out in the Night reveals how their race, gender identity and sexuality became criminalised in the mainstream news media and criminal justice system.
