PFLAG to screen ‘Gender Revolution’ in Grass Valley

Submitted to The Union

The Nevada County chapter of PFLAG, or Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays, will host the first community screening of the National Geographic presentation, "Gender Revolution: A Journey with Katie Couric," at 7 p.m. on May 23 at the Unitarian Universalist Community of the Mountains, located at 246 South Church Street in Grass Valley. PFLAG was able to obtain the film from National Geographic, which is encouraging community screenings throughout the country and abroad.

"I am proud of our role in bringing a discussion about gender to the forefront," said National Geographic's editor in chief, Susan Goldberg in the DVD's accompanying handbook. "Our award-winning news team will expand on the coverage with videos, interactives, a glossary, and maps — including a first-of-its-kind map that takes a look at the legality of gender change around the globe. And I hope our footprint as the number one non-celebrity brand on social media will spark thoughtful conversations around the world."

The screening will take place at 7 p.m., after PFLAG'S two support groups, both of which begin at 6 p.m. One group is designed for families, friends, allies, and LGB+ folks and a second group for the transgender folks. Both groups are open to all ages and everyone is invited to attend. There is no fee to attend the screening. For more information please contact Pat Rose at 530-277-0489.
