LGBTQ Film Series: Pride

Join us for our third film in our LGBTQ Film Series. 
Based on a true story, Pride depicts a group of lesbian and gay activists who raised money to help families affected by the British miners' strike in 1984, at the outset of what would become the Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners campaign. The alliance was unlike any seen before and was ultimately successful.

We especially encourage our friends in labor to attend so that we can further strengthen our connections and create more unity within our movements.

Popcorn and light refreshments will be provided. Blankets and pillows are encouraged for added comfort.

February Winter Film Series film - "Brother Outsider"

  • Pride Center 419 Inside the Collingwood Arts Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Join us for our Winter Film Series monthly film. BROTHER OUTSIDER illuminates the life and work of Bayard Rustin, a visionary activist and strategist who has been called "the unknown hero" of the civil rights movement. A tireless crusader for social and economic justice, a disciple of Gandhi, a mentor to Martin Luther King Jr., and chief organizer of the 1963 March on Washington, Rustin dared to live as an openly gay man during the fiercely homophobic 1940's, 1950's and 1960's. BROTHER OUTSIDER reveals the price that Rustin paid for this openness, chronicling both the triumphs and setbacks of his remarkable 60-year career.

This event if free and open to the public.
