W/Special Guest Joe Stevens
For our first Reel Youth screening, we proudly presented a special screening of REAL BOY (2016 Audience FavoriteDocumentary), followed with a Q&A and performance by musician Joe Stevens (featured in the movie).
REAL BOY is an intimate story of a family in transition. As 19-year-old Bennett Wallace navigates early sobriety, late adolescence, and the evolution of his gender identity, his mother makes her own transformation from resistance to acceptance of her trans son. Along the way, both mother and son find support in their communities, reminding us that families are not only given, but chosen
“Rocky Horror Picture Show”
featuring the Junior Chamber of Commerce Players
For our Rocky Horror picture show, we wanted to give the youth a full-experience of seeing the movie with a crowd, so we invited our friends from the Junior Chamber of Commerce Players to give lessons on how to dance to the Time Warp and when to yell out (in)appropriate comment. For many of the youth, it was their first time experiencing Rocky Horror so we had the JCCP cast give a history lesson of the movie and it’s important context within our community.
For Pride month, we teamed up with Pittsburgh AIDS Task Force to screen the movie “PRIDE”. Based on a true story, “PRIDE” follows a group of gay and lesbian activists who raised money to help families affected by the British miner’s strike in 1984. The film earned widespread critical acclaim and won the Queer Palm award at Cannes Film Festival. We’re also providing light refreshments including pizza from Spak Brothers Pizza.
