ONE STRIDE: CHOSEN FAMILY
May 3 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm| $10
Join us for a program that explores the history of chosen family and its significance to LGBTQ communities. The evening will feature a talk about queer kinship by Sarah Lawrence Professor Dr. Mary A. Porter, a screening of award-winning Director/Producer Stephen Winter’s short documentary “One Stride: Chosen Family,” a talkback with Winter, and a special performance by The LOFT’s Pride Chorus, an LGBTQ family of choice.
Winter’s documentary follows the stories of three sets of LGBTQ chosen families, including that of civil rights activist and trailblazer Richard Leitsch, former president of the Mattachine Society.
$10, Free to Students
