LGBT Movie Night - Eastsiders - Oct 16, 7pm

Eastsiders    (2012; USA; 115 min.)
MV5BOTc1NDg1OTM1OF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMzIzNzI2OQ@@._V1_SY317_CR12,0,214,317_AL_


"EastSiders" is a dark comedy web series which premiered on December 14, 2012. It was written and directed by Kit Williamson."EastSiders" explores the aftermath of infidelity on a gay couple in the Silverlake neighborhood of Los Angeles, California. The story focuses on how the relationship of Cal and Thom is affected by infidelity and substance abuse. The story line also explores the relationship between Cal’s somewhat unstable best friend, Kathy, and her nice-guy boyfriend, Ian.

The initial two episodes of the series take place on the day of the supposed Mayan Apocalypse (December 21, 2012). Thom, Cal, Kathy and Ian all attend an "End of the World" party hosted by party promoter, Quincy. During the event, Cal learns that Thom has been cheating on him with Jeremy. The question remains whether they will stay together or break up over the affair.

The series premiered online on December 14, 2012 and a second episode was released on December 21, 2012. The series has received considerable attention from the press because it portrays gay characters but does not focus on the characters' sexual orientations as a major plot point. The remaining seven episodes of the series have been funded by a Kickstarter campaign. The campaign met its goal on January 11, 2013 and filming began in February 2013, intended for release in March 2013. The series is filmed entirely on location in SilverLake, Los Angeles.

LGBT Movie Night - Before and After Stonewall - Oct 23, 7pm

Before and After Stonewall: The 25th Anniversary Edition (1984 and 1999; USA; 174 min.) MV5BMTQxMTgxNDc4M15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNDc1NTUyMQ@@._V1_SY317_CR4,0,214,317_AL_
MV5BMTU4NzU2MzIzOF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwOTY0NjcyMQ@@._V1_SY317_CR14,0,214,317_AL_

On June 28, 1969, the NYPD raided the Stonewall Inn, a mafia-run gay bar in New York’s Greenwich Village, leading to three nights of rioting by the city’s gay community. With this outpouring of courage and unity the gay pride movement had begun.

These two seminal documentaries tell the remarkable tale of how homosexuals, a heretofore hidden and despised group, became a vibrant and integral part of America’s family, and, indeed, the world community.

Before Stonewall Is narrated by musician Melissa Etheridge.  Participants include Dorothy Allison, Jewelle Gomez, Rita Mae Brown, Craid Luca, Arnie Kantrowitz, Barbara Gittings, Barbara Smith, Larry Kramer, and Barney Frank. Experience the fascinating and unforgettable history of homosexuality in America through eye-opening historical footage and interviews with those who lived through it. Revealing and often humorous, this widely acclaimed film re-lives events from the 1920s up until the fevered 1969 riots. Narrated by Rita Mae Brown.

After Stonewall Is a 1999 documentary film directed by John Scagliotti about the 30 years of gay rights activism since the 1969 Stonewall riots. It is the sequel to the Scagliotti-produced 1986 film Before Stonewall. This film chronicles lesbian and gay life from the 1969 Stonewall riots to the new century, capturing the hard work, tragic defeats and exciting victories experienced. It also explores the impact that AIDS had on the movement, and the new direction it took as a result. Narrated by Melissa Etheridge.

Host: Daniel Frommherz (541-688-1223).  Location: 4140 Concord St. in Eugene.  From Beltline take the Barger Drive Exit eastbound to Echo Hollow Rd.  Turn right (south) onto Echo Hollow.  Go south on Echo Hollow past Cascade Middle School two blocks to Concord St. Turn left onto Concord.  Daniel's house is the fourth house on the right.  His front yard is filled with roses, and there is a large truck in his driveway.  Once again, the address is 4140 Concord St. If approaching from Hwy 99, take Royal Avenue westbound to Echo Hollow Rd.  Turn right (north) onto Echo Hollow, and proceed past "Everyone's Market" on the right--Concord is the next street north.

A benefit for Parenting Now!’s
LGBTQ Parenting Education and Support Initiative. Parenting Now! provides parenting education and support programs that help parents meet the challenges of everyday life so they and their children will thrive. The LGBTQ Parenting Education and Support Initiative was created to address the specific needs of LGBTQ parents and their children.

Suggested
Donation: $8 - $50.  Free fresh picked apple with admission!

Mom's Apple Pie: The Heart of the Lesbian Mother's Custody Movement
revisits the early tumultuous years of the lesbian custody movement through the stories of five lesbian mothers and their four children.
Narrated by Kate Clinton, the documentary interviews the sons and daughters who were separated from their mothers, the mothers themselves, and one woman who made the difficult decision to flee with her children. Founders of the Lesbian Rights Project (now the National Center for Lesbian Rights) and the Lesbian Mothers' National Defense Fund recount the founding of their organizations in response to the bevy of court rulings granting custody to grandparents, fathers and distant relatives based on the belief that lesbians would be unfit parents. Rich with archival photos from JEB (Joan E. Biren) and Cathy Cade, the documentary also features music from iconic lesbian musicians Margie Adam, Alix Dobkin, Mary Watkins and Cris Williamson.

Future of PFLAG in Eugene/Springfield area?

Dear PFLAG Members, Friends and Supporters;

Is PFLAG still needed in Eugene/Springfield and surrounding area? Or, is it time to disband this chapter? These are questions that the current Board of Directors is facing.
PFLAG Eugene/Springfield cannot continue without additional board members! We also need more volunteers to help coordinate and staff events.

2013 has been a momentous year for the LGBTQIQ community throughout the country and in Eugene/Springfield too. Over the past year, PFLAG Eugene/Springfield has provided scholarships to graduating local high school seniors, sponsored a weekly support group for LGBTQ youth (transitioning to a new organizational sponsor for 2014), provided support to parents and other family members, co-sponsored several events, including a QPR Suicide prevention workshop, Gen Silent film showing, and additional events at Campbell Senior Center, made donations in support of Gender Awareness Week activities and to Youth for the Education and Prevention of Sexual Assault (YEPSA), done community outreach and tabling at a variety of community events, raised funds for Special Olympics by participating in the Polar Plunge, and marched in the Eugene Celebration Parade with ACLU, Basic Rights Oregon, Religious Response Network, and other LGBTQIQ advocacy groups.

We cannot continue with the types of activities noted above without additional new leadership. If you think PFLAG Eugene/Springfield should continue, please volunteer to join us to make it a reality.

PLEASE CONTACT US BY PHONE: 541-302-4422, OR EMAIL: Pflag.es1@gmail.com

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT,

Sharon Guinee, President, Membership Chair, Eugene/Springfield PFLAG

TransPonder is a monthly gathering for trans*-identified and questioning folks. It is a place where we can socialize, share resources, and provide support surrounding the achievements and challenges we encounter from living the shared experience of not adhering to the gender binary.

Water and tea are provided; though attendees are encouraged to bring their own water bottle.

In addition to the TransPonder meetings there is also a TransPonder email list which serves as a reminder for the monthly meetings as well as a place where we can communicate between gatherings to discuss topics of interest and provide community event notifications.
The group and the email list are specifically for trans*-identified or questioning folks only. We do adore our partners and allies, and this group was created with a different intention in mind -- to provide a safe space where trans* folks from all walks of life can come together and find community no matter their "out" status.

Trans* is an umbrella term that refers to all of the identities that fall within the gender identity spectrum that do not adhere to the gender binary.

In this case it includes all identities that are non-cisgendered such as: transgender, trans-man, trans-woman, transsexual, transvestite, gender-queer, gender-fluid, non-binary, gender-f*ck, genderless, androgynous, neuter, agender, pangender, non- gendered, third gender, two-spirit, and bigender (to name a few).

New Website UOUT - Univ of Oregon LGBTQ students

The University of Oregon would like to announce the publication of our new website- UOUT available at http://lgbt.uoregon.edu   The purpose of the site is to serve as a resource for current and prospective students around issues of sexual orientation, gender identity, campus involvement, ally building, and social justice.   Over the next few months we will continue to add content and improve the information available.
 
We are excited about a few potential links to the community and hope folks will contact us in these areas if they want to be included in our information.
 
1)
      If you are provider of a service that offers something SPECIFIC to LGBTQ students, ie. Counseling, health and wellness, attorney’s in areas unique to LGBTQ issues, please contact us through program@uoregon.edu.  We will be culling through local resources to best meet the questions and needs of the LGBTQ students on our campus.  We do not have the capacity to list every service and there are tons of other websites that do that but please consider asking.  We will NOT be making recommendations for any one person or service but just offering a location for referral.  If you are interested please send the email to program@uoregon.edu with the following information:
a.
       Name and contact information/website etc.
b.
      Type of Services
c.
       Statement about specific relationship to lgbt students
d.
      If your field requires licensure please identify your participation in that program- mental health professionals, attorneys etc.
e.
      Any other information that would be helpful: eg- sliding scale fees, close to campus experience with students already
 
2)
      If you facilitate a local support, discussion or social group for LGBTQA folks and would like to be listed here http://lgbt.uoregon.edu/GetInvolved/SocialOpportunities.aspx  please let us know.  Also- check if your group is already listed and if the contact information is correct.
 
3)
      If you are affiliated with a spiritual or religious organization that has an welcoming congregation for LGBTQ people please let us know.  We would really appreciate some community recommendations for this piece so we know our LGBTQ students who are looking for welcoming and supportive spaces don’t end up in places that are not being truthful about their purpose.  Once we get a list of those we will put those here  http://lgbt.uoregon.edu/GetSupport/CommunityResources.aspx
 
 
Please be patient as we collect all of this information and get it posted to our website.  If you see any incorrect information please email us as well and we will do our best to correct that.  We are looking forward to some wonderful community partnerships.

New Lane Transgender Yahoo Group

While some transgender people in Lane County experience strong social support, I've noticed it can be pretty difficult for people to find support who are new to the community and/or who are new to identifying as transgender. To address that problem in one small way, I started an email list for the use of transgender people and allies in Lane County who want a way to connect with others.

If you are a transgender person or ally, please consider joining and sending a message introducing yourself to the group. Or, consider forwarding this message to someone who is. Thanks for your attention to this!
