Shoulders to Stand On | Documentary Screening & Discussion

When: Thu., Oct. 15, 7-8:45 p.m. 2015

In Shoulders to Stand On, a 90-minute documentary directed by Kevin J. Indovino, Rochester--a city that has always been at the forefront of social change and justice--takes center stage. Inspired by the spirit of a city renowned for the legacies of Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass, Rochester’s LGBT community would set the bar for gay activism and religious tolerance. Audiences are engaged through very personal stories to experience the courage, sacrifice and accomplishments of our early pioneers from pre-Stonewall through the Marriage Equality Act.
