Join Us for a Special PRIDE Month Closing Celebration! 🎉🌈
PACE invites our members and friends to join us for an unforgettable evening of camaraderie, dinner, and a movie as we close out PRIDE month. Mark your calendars for 5:45 PM on Saturday, June 29th, at the Robinson Film Center in downtown Shreveport, LA.
For just $30, your ticket will include:
🍽️ A delicious buffet dinner in the RFC’s multimedia space
🎬 A movie ticket to the updated, final cut of “Closet2Pride: Memoirs of Shreveport,” which premiered at the RFC earlier this year
🎁 Exciting prizes to be given away during the dinner
🎟️Tickets will go on sale at the RFC starting Tuesday, June 11.
“Closet2Pride,” created by local filmmakers Robert Darrow and David Hylan, delves into the historical struggles and triumphs of the LGBTQ+ community in Shreveport. Featuring heartfelt interviews, archival footage, and personal stories, the film explores the challenges of coming out and living authentically in a conservative environment. It also highlights the community’s fight for rights, from early activists to contemporary movements. This powerful documentary celebrates the strength and courage of the LGBTQ+ community while shedding light on the ongoing struggle for acceptance and equality.
PRIDE is a celebration of the actual lives of the LGBTQ+ community. For years, being LGBTQ+ or having an LGBTQ+ family member was something often shrouded in silence, leading to widespread distortion and misrepresentation of LGBTQ+ lives. Today, as some voices attempt to silence and make the LGBTQ+ community invisible, it is more important than ever to come together, celebrate our truths, and continue striving for equality.
We invite everyone to join us in this celebration as we close out PRIDE month together.
We look forward to celebrating with you!
