For the first time in the State of Indiana, Indiana Pride of Color is proud to present the film Blackbird. Blackbird is a emotional tale that many people within the LGBT community can identify with. Blackbird focuses on a young black male growing up in a small, religious town in Mississippi. The main character, Randy Rousseau, who is played by Julian Walker, struggles to balance his sexuality with the negative messages he hears while singing in the church choir.
Academy Award winner Mo’Nique and Isaiah Washington co-star as Randy’s conservative parents who have two drastically different responses when learning their son’s true sexuality. This film has won several awards for its talented cast, including the “Best Men’s Feature Audience Awards Film of 2014”. Although the film was released this April, due to limited release, the film has not been shown in Indiana.
Doors open for the event at 6pm, with the film beginning at 7pm. Please arrive early for a special reception and kick-off to Indiana Pride of Color’s Celebration Weekend. Refreshments will be provided.
Celebration Weekend is the premiere weekend-of-events for IPOC that celebrate the diversity within the LGBT community. Celebration Weekend is expected to draw over 3000 attendees through the various events.
In addition, we are inviting guests to attend our Pride of Life Workshop Series the following day, Friday, July 17th. One workshop will feature a discussion on Religion & Sexuality – Intersecting Identities. Register here!
