Featuring the Film

The LGBTQ rights movement is often called the new civil rights movement of today. But is that entirely true? Are they similar or fundamentally different? Are the two movements headed toward the same destination? Why aren't we there yet? And why are they fighting in the car along the way? Two unlikely friends-Gil, an 80-year-old black, straight retired preacher and civil rights leader, and Marilyn, a 52-year-old white lesbian activist and author-and we wanted to find out just what lies at the conflict and the crossroads of these two important American movements.

SUMMIT REGISTRATION: $25
