Thursday November 20 at 6 p.m. ‘GEN SILENT’ Documentary Screening at Bain Senior Center, Columbia

Please join LGBT Older Adults Task Force of Howard County  & PFLAG Howard County at a free screening of the highly acclaimed documentary, ‘Gen Silent’ on the evening of November 20th – 6-8 p.m. at the Bain Senior Center, 5470 Ruth Keaton Way in Columbia.

The film highlights how LGBT older people fear discrimination by caregivers or bullying by other seniors,  which forces many to simply go back into the closet.

A discussion led by Dr. Imani Woody, chair of SAGE Metro DC follows the film.

Join Us Tuesday Nov. 11- 7:30 p.m for VERY Important Film & Discussion

TREVOR ProjectTuesday November 11th in the main room of the Owen Brown Interfaith Center at 7:30pm PFLAG will be screening the Film Trevor followed by a presentation by the Trevor Project, an LGBT youth suicide prevention program.

Film Synopsis: Funny and moving, TREVOR is about a 13-year old boy living in 1981 consumed by his love for Diana Ross and musical theatre. He is befriended by Pinky Faraday, a hunky athletic middle school classmate, and quickly becomes enamored of him.  Soon enough, word spreads that Trevor is gay and he is shunned by all his classmates including Pinky.  Realizing that he does indeed like boys, though not understanding why everyone thinks that’s such a bad thing, Trevor decides it would probably be better for everyone if he weren’t around.

But ultimately, Trevor is no victim. Help comes in an unexpected form, and by the end, it’s clear Trevor’s developing sense of self and undeniable enthusiasm for life will always see him through.
