Roots of Equality.
On These Shoulders We Stand sold out two screenings at Outfest this year before winning the 2009 Outfest Special Programming Award for Freedom. On Sunday, the film will be shown again for the first time on a big screen since Outfest. On These Shoulders We Stand will be screened at the Downtown Independent Theater on Sunday, October 25th at 7:00 pm.
Pre-Sale tickets are $20 online and day-of tickets are $25 at the door. The film will be followed by a Q&A session with filmmaker Glenne McElhinney and cast members. An after-party with a no-host bar will be held on the roof of the theater immediately following the Q&A session.
On These Shoulders We Stand documents the story of eleven elders of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender community in Los Angeles. The film brings to light Los Angeles' hidden gay history with narration and unprecedented access to seldom-seen archival materials.
Downtown Independent Theater is located on 251 S. Main Street in Downtown Los Angeles (MAP).
The profits from this screening will go to benefit the production of LAvender Los Angeles. More information on Lavender Los Angeles can be found at www.rootsofequality.org. More information and the trailer for On These Shoulders We Stand are available at www.impactstories.org.
