‘Patrik, Age 1.5’ explores gay couple’s unusual adoption

Patrik, Age 1.5

How do you say “Lifetime Television” in Swedish? The story told in “Patrik, Age 1.5” (“Patrik 1,5”), which debuted in last year’s Out on Film, is very familiar, but in most versions the principal couple is heterosexual. (“Breakfast with Scot” was a recent exception.)

New film ‘Stonewall Uprising’ revisits LGBT milestone

Stonewall Riots

Georgia native David Carter is the author of “Stonewall: The Riots that Sparked the Gay Revolution,” the meticulously researched 2004 book on which the film “Stonewall Uprising” is based.

As this weekend marks 41 years since Stonewall, and 40 years since the first Gay Pride celebrations, we caught up with Carter — who now lives in New York City — to discuss his role in making the film, the myths that still surround the riots, and what we can still learn from Stonewall today.
