Outspoken: an evening of music and film for Parkersburg Pride

September 21, 2019

Imagine being sacked from your job or prevented from renting a flat simply because of your sexual orientation or gender identity.

AS there’s no national law in the USA preventing this kind of discrimination, it happens all the time.

Outspoken, will take place on Saturday, October 12, to shine a light on this issue while raising money and awareness for Parkersburg Pride, a group in West Virginia that’s working on the front lines of LGBT+ rights.

The evening will feature the UK premiere of Emily Harger’s brand new documentary Outspoken, a film that calls us to reimagine the power of LGBT+ people in small town America.
