Hello all,

Please join us for this exciting event on Sunday May 8th! Forward widely…post to FB…Thanks!

I Am, a film by Sonali Gulati.

Boston LGBTQ Film Festival
2PM – Sunday May 8th  – Brattle Theater (40 Brattle St. Harvard Sq.)
4PM – MASALA Reception with the filmmaker @ OM Restaurant & Lounge (92 Winthrop St Harvard Sq.) following the screening

Having lost the opportunity to tell her mother that she is a lesbian, a young Indian filmmaker in search of answers, travels across India to meet with parents of other gay and lesbian South Asians. I Am is a personal and revealing film that journeys to a landscape where being gay was until recently a criminal and punishable offense. With courage, determination, and humor, families share untold stories that have thus far remained in the realm of secrecy and silence. It is a unique and groundbreaking film that defies the very genre of documentary filmmaking.

See you then! (And check out the rest of the great films at the festival too!)

The BBQ will take place at the sprawling 13-acre Arsenal Park in Watertown. There will be ribs, steak, wings, hot dogs, vegetarian fare, and drinks. If you want to bring a special dish, please do, it is welcome but not required. Feel free to bring frisbees, balls, water guns, cards, board games — we might even play a little capture the flag. Bring a partner, bring a friend, bring an ally, bring your mom — everyone is welcome!
