They'll be showing the second film in the series, Pariah, on Thursday, June 28 at 7:00 pm at the Capri Theater.

All are invited to join on Thursday evening for this important film screening. There are very few films that openly explore the intersections of African-American family life and issues of sexual orientation and gender identity. Pariah is one of these films.

Pariah is an award-winning film about a Brooklyn teenager who juggles conflicting identities and risks friendship, heartbreak, and family in a desperate search for sexual expression. (2011) Directed by Dee Rees. Produced by Spike Lee. Pariah.pdf

FREC will also be providing a panel of individuals from the community who will speak after the film, sharing their experiences as GLBT people of color and facilitating an open discussion with the audience.
