The event kicks off Friday, September 6th with films at the Robinson Film Center starting at 1 pm. Friday night at 7 pm local actor Dudley Beene will be featured in a screening of "First Period." Saturday, a showing of the film "Southern Baptist Sissies" is SOLD OUT but you can catch that flick again next Thursday, Sept. 12th. The final event is at 7:45 pm next Thursday night. "Bridegroom" will be shown and a panel will discuss issues surrounding gay couples after the movie wraps.
