Word Is Out: Stories of Some of Our Lives
Friends of the region’s thriving GLBT community are invited to join us for Out @ Wex. The weekend-long cinematic celebration features special events including a visit from filmmaker Su Friedrich, our annual Out @ Wex Party, and the world premiere of Reid Farrington’s multimedia play<a href="http://www.wexarts.org/pa/index.php?eventid=4323">Gin and“It.”</a>
Many classic films are just as powerful today as when they were first released. We add such films from many genres to our schedule throughout the season. Many are shown on the occasion of their rereleases, in fresh, new or restored prints.
“A stunning documentary…unquestionably a landmark film.”—Los Angeles Times
Considered the first feature-length documentary on gay and lesbian identity, Word Is Out presents the lives and struggles of 26 diverse individuals.
Period figures including John Burnside, Sally M. Gearheart, and Harry Hay offer perspectives that challenge common stereotypes of the time. (135 mins., video)
