Brother Outsider

We are really, really excited to show "Brother Outsider" at the next PFLAG meeting this Sunday, Valentine's Day, Feb. 14 from 2-4:30 p.m.

About Brother Outsider: The Life of Bayard Rustin -- A leader in the Civil Rights movement who was kept under wraps primarily because he was an openly gay man, Rustin was a mentor to Dr. Martin Luther King and the prime organizer of the March on Washington. This film is a fascinating look at the life of a little known but very important leader. There will be a short discussion after the film viewing.

Our usual meeting format will be adjusted to allow for time for the film and discussion.

The viewing of this film is part of a larger diversity outreach project. about which there is more information in the January-February newsletter.

Note: Our usual meeting room, The Gathering Room, is being used by the church so we will meet in room 221-222 down the ramp to the right as you enter the front door. Watch for signs.

PFLAG meets at First United Methodist Church at Boundary and 5th Ave., Olympia.
