Mark your calendars! On Tuesday, October 20 at 6:30 pm, PFLAG will be co-sponsoring the West Coast premiere of a documentary film concerning the plight of LGBT people in Jamaica. The 70 minute film, Taboo Yardies, will be shown at The LGBT Center in Hillcrest (3909 Centre Street). The event is free of charge.
This is a special screening because you will get to meet the filmmaker and director, Selena Blake, who will lead a panel discussion about the film and the current situation in her country.
You will also get to meet Angeline Jackson, a leading lesbian activist who founded Quality of Citizenship Jamaica. On his visit to Jamaica in March, President Obama praised her courageous efforts to gain basic human rights for LGBT people.
Light refreshments will be served.
