OPENING. NIGHT SCREENING: THE LONG ROAD TO FREEDOM: The Advocate Celebrates 50 Years

September 20, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:15 pm

$13.25

Narrated by Laverne Cox with music by Melissa Etheridge, this moving documentary tells the story of our lives through the pages, covers and first fifty years of our most prized L:GBTQ magazine: THE ADVOCATE. This stunning documentary focuses on major events and watershed moments in LGBTQ history through never-before-seen archival footage and engaging interviews (Ricky Martin, Darryl Stephens, John Waters, Gloria Allred, Gavin Newsom, Dustin Lance Black, Margaret Cho, Robbie Rogers, and many more). Starting with the Black Cat, the film covers Stonewall, the 70s and the sexual revolution that continued from the late 60s, the disco years, the saga of the AIDS crisis, equal rights, marriage equality, and the trans movement to present day. We’ve come a long way, but we’ve still got a long way to go. This is OUR HISTORY. Sponsored by HERE TV.
