Just Because I Am

Join us Monday October 3rd from 7:00-8:30 PM to see this moving documentary. The film follows a group of LGBT Windsor teens and young adults for a six-month period as they prepare their performance of Waking Up Blue, an original play that shares many of their own true experiences. The film takes the viewer through the journey of this youth group, led by an enthusiastic mentor, who gives a response to homophobia by creating a performance on love, respect and tolerance. While experiencing the transformative energy of art and the empowering effects of self-affirmation, these youngsters also face aggravating homophobic reactions unleashed by their collective coming out in this traditionally conservative border city. Artists/Filmmakers Gabrielle Pescador and Juan Javier Pescador will be on hand to lead a discussion following the screening of their 60-minute film. "Just Because I Am" is not rated.
