We will be showing the documentary The Believers about the first all transgender gospel choir. From the choir’s heart-warmingly chaotic, cacophonous beginnings to its transformation into a polished, award-winning choir and close-knit family, the film showcases the ways community is built and sustained through shared joy.
The Believers (2006) 80 minutes, unrated, [closed captions not available for this film]
There will be a discussion and refreshments following the film.
Free and all are welcome.
The Trans Joy Film Series will run through the end of 2019, and features films that center the joy and power of transgender, non-binary, and gender non-conforming people. These films counter Hollywood and mainstream media portrayals of transgender and non-binary people as tragic, deceptive, and marginalized.
We ask that attendees park in the Nyack Municipal Lot located off Cedar St. This lot is a two block walk from the new Pride Center building. Please leave time to park and arrive at the Pride Center on time. All parking meters are in effect from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm and 11:00 pm to 6:00 am Monday through Sunday. The cost for the meters is $0.75 per hour.
Because we want to be good neighbors, please do not park in or walk through the private lot directly across Franklin Street from the Pride Center. Instead, park in the Municipal Lot and follow Artopee Way past the bus stop. There is also a small lot on Jackson that is not open to public parking.
Support groups will meet on the ground floor of the new Pride Center building. The entrance door is level with the street, with two steps down into the room. These steps will be navigable by a temporary, metal wheelchair ramp. There is a single-occupant, gender neutral restroom on the ground floor. This restroom meets ADA space requirements and clearances, and there is a grab bar near the toilet.
If you need additional information about accessibility, please contact the Pride Center at (845) 353-6300 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
