“To be able to screen it again as part of Stonewall Month with Atlanta Pride and the Ben Cohen StandUp Foundation is a great opportunity and a perfect fit,” he said.
The screening is a collaboration of the StandUp Foundation, Atlanta Pride Committee and Out on Film. It is also a fundraiser for all three groups, with tickets priced at $15.
Cohen, the first straight athlete to focus his philanthropy on LGBT rights, visited Atlanta last year with the gay Atlanta Bucks rugby team. Cohen chose the city as the home for his anti-bullying foundation, and returns for a question-and-answer session following the screening.
Farmer said those who attend the screening would “absolutely” have a chance to meet Cohen.
“He is coming down for the screening and Q-and-A afterwards. We are very excited about his participation,” he said.
