A friend of mine, Jon Sugar, is hosting a screening of a documentary film about the 1975 Pride celebration in Golden Gate Park, titled "The More Visible We Are, The Stronger We Become." Some of the people in the film will be on hand. This is at Magnet space, a clinic located at 4122 18th Street at Castro, a block from the Castro MUNI station, so it won't be on large movie theater type screen. But it's free. And should be interesting. The title has struck me as the expression of a powerful message that we as activists working on various causes in the freedom movement would do well to ponder. Official listing from the Magnet website:
GAWK Presents "The More Visible We Are, The Stronger We Become: A Retrospective"
Saturday, February 24th, 7:00-9:00 PM
The Gay Artists and Writers Kollective will show the 1975 video The More Visible We Are, The Stronger We Become: A Retrospective. Twenty minutes of footage from the 1975 parade (see how much we've changed, or haven't), as well as 20 minutes of extra footage with attendees at the parade. The film producers, ACME Amalgamated, will have copies on hand for purchase. There might even be popcorn!
Love & liberty,
