Free screening of "Out in the Silence" tonight in Laramie

From Jeran Artery at Wyoming Equality:
The American Civil Liberties Union of Wyoming is proud to partner with Wyoming Equality to present a film screening of Out in the Silence, followed by a discussion about Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender (LGBT) issues in Wyoming. The aim of this event is to expand public awareness about the difficulties that LGBT people face in Wyoming, and to promote dialogue and action that will help people on all sides of the issues find common ground.

This event is free and open to the public.

ABOUT THE FILM: Out in the Silence captures the remarkable chain of events that unfold when the announcement of filmmaker Joe Wilson’s wedding to another man ignites a firestorm of controversy in his small Pennsylvania hometown. Wilson’s journey dramatically illustrates the universal challenges of being an outsider in a conservative environment and the transformation that is possible when those who have long been constrained by a traditional code of silence summon the courage to break it.
