The Coming Out Monologues: Then and Now 
April 2, 2015
6pm
Rudder Theater

Join us for the 8th Annual Coming Out Monologues! They are a culmination of stories written and performed by students, faculty, staff of Texas A&M and B/CS community members and present various aspects of the coming out process spanning the range of human emotion. Inspired by “The Vagina Monologues” written by Eve Ensler, they are a representation of the diverse and unique experiences from LGBTQA individuals as a means to empower and build community by sharing their own story. Included are stories from numerous and unique backgrounds and perspectives, including coming out as an ally, as straight, from the perspective of parents and friends of people in the GLBT community, as well as members of the GLBT community itself. Additionally, to honor the 30th anniversary of the Gay Student Services vs. Texas A&M court decision, this year's monologues will include performances from former students and professionals. This event is co-sponsored by LGBTQ Aggies. 

 

3rd Annual Pride Film Festival
April 4, 2015

Be sure to join Pride Community Center for the 3rd Annual Pride Film Festival!

Pride Community Center is hosting its 3rd Annual Film Festival Saturday, April 4, with an array of films that explore what Festival Chairman Kay Dennis calls “human conditions.”

Beginning at 10 a.m. at Stage Center in Bryan, Pride will be serving up 15 cinematic pieces that Dennis says will strike a chord in both gay and straight viewers. “Films are about emotions, and that’s something we can all relate to,” Dennis said. From the romantic fumbling of “The Ten Year Plan” to the unexpected joys and trials of aging in “Before You Know It,” this year’s festival has a wide of variety of both short and feature films.

“We are thrilled to be showing ‘Matt Shepard Is A Friend of Mine,’ which is a new release chronicling Matt’s life with never before seen photos and interviews with his friends,“ Dennis said. Bryan/College Station theatergoers will remember Shepard as the subject of the recent Stage Center production “the Laramie Project” which recalled Shepard’s short life and brutal death in Wyoming.

Festival tickets may be purchased for individual film blocks or as an All Access Pass and are available online at http://www.showclix.com/event/PrideFilmFestival. There will be a 15 minute intermission between film blocks. Patrons purchasing the All Access Pass may leave and re-enter during pauses between the movies.
