Films document decades of LGBT equality fight

Married and Counting 

It’s not billed as the Stonewall Film Festival, but Stonewall Month events include screenings on two consecutive nights, June 11 and 12, of documentaries that essentially bookend the ongoing story of the fight for LGBT equality.

Both films are set for 7 p.m. at the Landmark Midtown Art Cinemas.

“On These Shoulders We Stand,” screening June 11, has evolved from Glenne McElhinney’s oral history project, Impact Stories: California’s LGBT History, for which she’s been traveling the Golden State interviewing LGBT pio-queers, now in their 70s and 80s.

Fall in love with movies at Out on Film

Cloudburst film

Love is in the air at the 25th Out on Film, Atlanta’s LGBT film festival, Oct. 4-11 at Landmark’s Midtown Art Cinema. I don’t know when I’ve seen so much romance in a queer festival.

There’s young love, old love, lesbian love, gay love, baby love, kinky love, married love, platonic love, coercive love, transformative love... Oh, there’s politics too, but that’s mostly confined to the documentary section, or woven in with the love stories.

All films (with exceptions noted) screen at Midtown Art Cinema (931 Monroe Drive, Atlanta GA 30308).
