Free Out At The Movies Screening!

Join us for the reception and screening!

Thursday | October 27 | 5:30 PM Reception and 6:30 FREE Screening | Jacob Burns Film Center

Mama Bears is an intimate, thought-provoking exploration of the journeys taken by Sara Cunningham and Kimberly Shappley, two “mama bears” —whose profound love for their LGBTQ children has turned them into fierce advocates for the entire queer community — and Tammi Terrell Morris, a young African American lesbian whose struggle for self-acceptance perfectly exemplifies why the mama bears are so vitally important.
