On Thursday, January 12th, Rachel Tenney brings us a Screening of the Documentary:
7:00PM Screening, Talkback to follow
We are in new political territory – LGBTQ Southerners and other vulnerable communities are at risk for significant rollbacks of basic rights and legal protections.
Since 2011, the Campaign for Southern Equality has worked across the South for LGBT rights. During 2011 to 2015 more than 200 couples applied for marriage licenses across the South as part of the WE DO Campaign. They took action knowing they would be denied.
This story this film tells is about what it means to be LGBT in the South. To stand up and speak out, knowing you are on the right side of history, but that the laws of every Southern state deny you a basic rights and protections.
This story of resistance will help guide us as we prepare to stand up ans speak out in 2017.
This film screening is free – wedding cake will be provided. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with the film’s director, Ryan Murdock. Murdock is the award winning filmmaker of Bronx Obama.
