Ori Gallery - Moonlight

Join us for a special Juneteenth (Tuesday June 19, 7pm) screening of Moonlight followed by a brief discussion about the film facilitated by Jay.

This event is open to queer folks of all race & genders. We do ask that all non-Black queers please be respectful and aware of the space you are taking up. 

Admission is free, but donations are always appreciated. 

Moonlight is a 2016 American coming-of-age drama film written and directed by Barry Jenkins, based on Tarell Alvin McCraney's unpublished semi-autobiographical play In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue. It stars Trevante Rhodes, André Holland, Janelle Monáe, Ashton Sanders, Jharrel Jerome, Naomie Harris, and Mahershala Ali.

The film presents three stages in the life of the main character. It explores the difficulties he faces with his own sexuality and identity, including the physical and emotional abuse he receives as a result of it.
