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.
Prodigal Sons Opens in New York City; GLAAD Q&A with Director Kimberly Reed, Wednesday, March 3
Prodigal Sons, the bold new autobiographical documentary from filmmaker Kimberly Reed, opens at the Cinema Village in New York City Friday, February 26. In the film, Reed documents her trip to the small Montana town where she grew up as Paul McKerrow,
the star high school quarterback.
Reed, who recently appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show and was profiled in Details magazine, offers an unflinching look into her life as a transgender lesbian traveling home for her 20th high school reunion and hoping for reconciliation with her troubled adopted brother. Winner of the FIPRESCI Prize at the Thessaloniki Documentary Film Festival, Best Documentary Jury Prize at NewFest, and Special Jury Prizes for Fearless Filmmaking at the Florida Film Festival and Bravery in Storytelling at the Nashville Film Festival, Prodigal Sons is a raw and provocative examination of one family’s struggle to come to terms with its past and present.
Cindi Creager, GLAAD's Director of National News, will lead a Q&A with Kimberly Reed on Wednesday, March 3 at the 7:20 PM screening of Prodigal Sons at the Cinema Village.
