CLAREMONT, Calif., May 24 (AScribe Newswire) -- Victor Silverman, a Pomona College history professor, won a prestigious Northern California Emmy Award in the category of Historical/Cultural Program or Special, for the documentary "Screaming Queens: The Riot at Compton's Cafeteria," which tells the story of the long-forgotten, but first-known act of militant transsexual resistance to social oppression.

       The award was presented to Silverman and his co-producers Susan Stryker and Jack Walsh, at the 35th Annual Northern California Emmy Awards ceremony, of the National Academy of Television Arts and Science - San Francisco/Northern California Chapter. The event was held at the Palace of Fine Arts Theatre and Exploratorium in San Francisco, on May 20, 2006.

       Screaming Queens will have a national broadcast on PBS stations in June 2006. Regional stations that have announced air-dates include WETA Television 26 in Washington, DC; WGBH Television 44 in Boston; KQED Television, the documentary's Bay Area partner, in Northern California; and WNET Television 13 in New York City

 As more dates are announced, the producers will post them on their website
