It's Pride Month. A collection of local agencies called the Visibility Action Team have organized a free movie event tomorrow evening featuring "Before You Know It: A Documentary" by PJ Ravel:
You Know It" will be airing in Iowa City tomorrow evening (Tuesday,
June 17th) at Film Scene at 5:45 PM. It will be followed by a Skype
discussion with the film's creators. The show will be re-airing on
Saturday, June 21st, at 3:00 PM at the Iowa City Public Library. This is
a free event!
These "are no ordinary senior citizens. they are go-go booted bar-hoppers, love struck activists, troublemaking
baton twirlers, later night Internet cruisers, seasoned renegades and
bold adventurers. They are also among the estimated 2.4 million lesbian,
gay and bisexual Americans over the age of 55 in the United States,
many of whom face heightened levels of discrimination, neglect and
exclusion... It's a film about generational trailblazers who have
surmounted prejudice and defied expectation to form communities of
strength, renewal and camaraderie -- whether these communities be
affable senior living facilities, lively activist enclaves or wacky
queer bars brimming with glittered trinkets and colorful drag queens."
