Save That Date! October 7th 2012 - Posted : 9/30/2012
In honor of LGBT History Month (October) and National Coming-Out Day (October 11) members of the Pride Alliance Columbus, Indiana, Inc. (PAC) and the Inclusive Community Coalition (ICC) will be guest speakers at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation Service on October 7, 2012.
During the service they will be giving a very brief history of both groups and will talk about their joint participation in THREADS of our Diversity, a project to capture the oral histories of the LGBTQ community in Bartholomew County. If there is sufficient interest after the service, they are willing to remain on hand for a round table discussion about what it is like for LGBTQ people (and their allies) to live and work in Columbus and the surrounding areas.
Both PAC and ICC would like to thank the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Columbus, Indiana for their invitation to help both groups fulfill their respective missions of community outreach and fostering dialogue about sexual orientation and gender identity. As well as thank Heritage Fund Bartholomew County for their Welcoming Community grant contribution to the THREADS of our Diversity project along with IUPUC.

Third Annual LGBT Film Festival - Updated : 2/12/2012
Third Annual LGBT Film Festival Coming To YES Cinema
Columbus, IN. When it first premiered in 2010, the Out Side Film Festival was the first film festival in Columbus, Indiana, to exclusively feature films from, about and for the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) community. Now in its third year festival producers are happy to announce the 2012 Out Side Film Festival will be Saturday, February 18, 2012, at the YES Cinema.
Produced by Pride Alliance Columbus, the festival will include a diverse selection of documentaries, independent films, and feature-length movies. “Every year we work very hard to pick films that have a broad appeal,” says Stephen Dunning of the Pride Alliance. “We not only want festival goers to be entertained, but we would like them to be challenged with new ideas. That is why we include documentaries along with Hollywood-style feature-length movies.”
The film festival is broken up into five screenings on Saturday. Tickets are $6 per film, $15 for a three-film pass, and $25 for an all-day pass with in-and-out privileges. All tickets will be available at the YES Cinema box office on the day of the festival.
The festival kick-off event will be a screening of the documentary This Is My Journey at 1 pm. Written, produced and directed by Illinois filmmaker Kate Brickman, This Is My Journey explores the emotional aspects of transitioning for Dana, Shayla and Cris, three transgender people living in Central Illinois. Dana will be present at the screening and will participate in a Q&A with the audience immediately following the movie. The Inclusive Community Coalition is sponsoring this festival opening event.
One more film will be featured in the afternoon program: Undertow is an award-winning film from Peru and will screen at 2:45 pm. A dinner break is scheduled at 4:30 pm and the festival will resume at 6 pm with the documentary Out In the Silence by filmmaker Joe Wilson. The Canadian film Finn’s Girl will be presented at 7:15 pm followed by Hollywood to Dollywood at 9 pm.
Advanced tickets can be purchased at the YES Cinema box office (812-378-0377). Bistro 310 is offering menu discounts to festival goers.
