|7:00PM||Out on Film Festival|
Join BWMT Atlanta for a movie night at Out on Film, Atlanta's LGBT Film Festival, on Thursday, September 29, 2016 at 7PM at Landmark Theatres in the Midtown Promenade Center. We will be viewing Strike a Pose. In 1990, six gay and one straight young male dancers joined the the tour of Madonna's controversial Blond Ambition tour. Now after 25 years, they reveal the truth about life during and after the tour. It is a tale of overcoming shame and finding courage to be who you are. One of the dancers, Carlton Wilborn, is expected to be in attendance that night. You must secure your own ticket for this event! Go to outonfilm.org and click on the ticket tab and to see a trailer of the film. The cost is $11 plus a $1 service charge. This is opening night of the festival so we strongly urge you to do this ASAP. We will meet in the lobby at about 6:30 PM. The film is in theater 7. Don't miss this exciting kickoff to Atlanta's LGBT Pride season!
