Indie Meme Mixer & Short Film Screening with filmmaker Sopan Muller

The 30 min documentary, MY CHILD IS GAY AND I AM HAPPY, is a series of interviews with some remarkable parents, whose children represent the LGBTQ community. It shows their journey, from being unsuspecting and often accepting, to being the caring, supportive parents they are today. In each case, the parent and the child are a source of great inspiration to the community.

WE WILL HAVE A MIXER FOLLOWED BY THE SHORT FILM & A DISCUSSION WITH THE FILMMAKER.
