More than 1,500 New Yorkers gathered today in Manhattan to mourn the death of a 32 year-old gay man, who was shot down on Friday just blocks away from the historic Stonewall Inn in an apparent act of anti-gay bias.
Attention New Yorkers: Indie Film on Thursday!
Hey, New Yorkers: Do you find yourself complaining that there aren't enough films by and/or about LGBT people of color? Well, we have a great indie for you to check out this Thursday, October 9.
ACT Now Foundation, a not-for-profit organization that promotes films and theater projects made by or about people of color, is screening Dreams Deferred: The Sakia Gunn Film Project. The film promises to depict the "homophobia that caused this real life murder and questions the lack of media coverage of the murder of a black gay teenager."
