Out in Albany

out in albany documentary title screen

In honor of Pride Week WMHT will be showing the documentary Out in Albany twice this month -- Tuesday, June 9 at 10 pm, and Monday, June 22 at 10 pm.

There are a few clips from the doc at that link above. Blurbage:

OUT IN ALBANY is a documentary project that highlights issues at the forefront of the LGBTQ community today while mining the rich history of LGBTQ lives in the Capital Region. A state worker transitioning from male to female. A teenager navigating high school as an out lesbian. A queer community member of color balancing identities. These are just a few of the stories being lived in the Capital Region today.
... It covers the history and trajectory of the many movements within the LGBTQ community while highlighting the issues at the forefront of the community today. Specifically, this documentary looks at historic points of setback and growth related to the LGBTQ movement. From the founding of the Pride Center in Albany to police raids to medical support for AIDS patients to the marriage equality movement, the documentary looks at the historic highs and lows of the equality movement.
Woven into the history of the region are the stories of individuals that illustrate the issues at the forefront of the current LGBTQ movement. These issues include transgender rights, youth support, LGBTQ people of color, and aging populations in the community.

The doc first premiered last year. And as far was can tell, it's not posted online in its entirety, so this is a good chance to catch it.

Definitely needs a mural. Another spot that is begging for one is the Delaware Ave Price Chopper in Albany. The side along Elm St is a huge gray wall that takes up most of the block!
