The Toronto screening of the festival will show solidarity with and raise money for a courageous group of people organizing the first ever LGBT film festival in Uganda at great risk to themselves. Tickets are $10, with all proceeds going directly to the festival. Pay what you can tickets can be obtained by emailing [email protected]
Outed, the film which will be screened, is based on a true story of what happened when one man is outed by a tabloid newspaper in Uganda. It is a raw and unflinching story of violence directed towards LGBT people in that country. A trailer can be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tEo8PAGPBJM Note: the film contains graphic scenes.
