SPEAKING FOR OURSELVES (Spectrum Queer Media)
Sunday, March 24 @ 3:15pm
Admission Price: $6
SPECTRUMQueerMedia.com presents SPEAKING FOR OURSELVES!
FEATURING a Q&A w/ Director John Mifsud
SPEAKING FOR OURSELVES introduces you to a wide variety of LGB youth: a young woman who drank turpentine because she wanted to die rather than deal with being bisexual; young people who play baseball; act in plays; and go to science classes. You will empathize with their tears, their courage and the laughter generated by their candid sharing.
This documentary will offer insight into these young lives.
Insight that will help us to really know who they are. Honest and emotional, these young LGB youth project a certain determined spirit that carries them through their most difficult confrontations. Originally shown on PBS, SPEAKING FOR OURSELVES was nominated for a Northwest Emmy Award.
Presented in solidarity with KPFA, Queer Art Impact, Sankofa Events, Nursha Project, Sista2Sista and the Mayors Office of the City of Oakland.
