The Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center is proud to partner with ArtsQuest and Pride of the Greater Lehigh Valley for the 3rd Annual LGBT Film Series in the Frank Banko Alehouse Cinemas. This month-long series occurring in late August/early September is designed to raise awareness of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues and will feature seven films, as well as special discussion sessions and talkbacks hosted by prominent members of the Lehigh Valley's LGBT community. The full film series schedule, with trailers is available here.
We're sponsoring the film, FRED, a one-hour film directed by John Fitzgerald Keitel. Following the screening, our Founding Director, Adrian Shanker, will moderate a talkback with special guest, Fred Karger, the subject of the film!
You can view the trailer here:
Film Summary: When Fred Karger began running for President of the United States in February 2010 filmmaker John Fitzgerald Keitel was at his side. John spent the next two years documenting his historic campaign as the first openly gay candidate for president from either major political party.
Now a one-hour documentary, FRED is out and gives audiences an inside look at the roller coaster campaign. Follow Fred from the towns of New Hampshire to the Iowa State Fair. Watch as he takes on Fox News and Mitt Romney.
See the reaction from Republican rank and file voters to any openly gay GOP candidate from New Orleans to New York, from Gay Pride Parades to the Southern Republican Leadership Conference as he fights for inclusion in the debates, takes on his opponents and campaigns to let lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans know that anything is possible.
It’s an hour of history that will make you laugh, cry and guaranteed to delight all audiences.
