A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition Film Showing & Discussion
Small Town Gay Bar

With discussion of the struggle for marriage equality in the wake of Prop 8, and how we can fight back and win full rights for all LGBT people.

In a time when gay rights are still very much at the forefront of political discussion, there are few places where the struggle is more evident than the Bible Belt of America. In the heart of Mississippi, out gay individuals often face rejection or even violence from friends, family, and powerful religious organizations when (and if) they make the decision to stop hiding their identities. So where do these individuals—out and closeted alike—find a place of acceptance and community? In the Deep South, gay bars have become something of a surrogate family, providing support and understanding in a culture that is otherwise painfully lacking.

In “Small Town Gay Bar,” Director Malcolm Ingram explores the struggle for equal rights by examining a variety of issues faced by gay men and women in the South. 2006, 81min.
