The Long Trail Out Documentary Film Screening

Posted by Tim on April 1, 2019 in Community Announcements, Event

“The Long Trail Out, a 25-minute documentary film, appeals to a wide and diverse audience, it works across generations and has the capacity to change minds and opinions as it takes the viewer on a very personal journey of coming out.  The struggles faced during a life of hiding, the decision to come out and the physical challenges faced while climbing mountains make for a powerful and compelling story.  The film’s message will educate both young and old, gay and straight, on the importance of being proud of who you are.”

The screening will be followed by remarks from the documentary subject and East Aurora native Tim Buchanan and Shai Ben-Dor, the filmmaker and director.  The program will conclude with a coming out panel of students, faculty and staff, and a reception in the Center for the Arts Atrium.

The event is open to the community and is co-sponsored by the Intercultural and Diversity Center and the Office of Inclusive Excellence.
