Join Us on Opening Night of 52 Tuesdays for Special Film Discussion

52 TUESDAYS Film Poster

We’ve been thrilled by the enthusiastic response PFLAG NYC supporters have given to recent film events, and we’re very happy to tell you about another one we’ve organized in cooperation with Kino Lorber.

52 Tuesdays is the story of a mom, transitioning to male, and his relationship with his teenage daughter who is thrust into her own search for identity. Filmed over the course of a year, once a week, every week (only on Tuesdays), it brings a rare authenticity to this emotionally charged story of desire, responsibility and transformation.

Exclusive NYC Advance Screening with Director Eric Schaeffer

Exclusive Film Screening - Boy Meets Girl

PFLAG NYC and the JCC Manhattan are proud to host the NYC premiere of Eric Schaeffer’s new internationally multi-award winning film, Boy Meets Girl. A ground-breaking coming-of-age romantic comedy, the film explores how falling in love transcends gender and how important it is to live a courageous life without fear standing in the way of your dreams.

Please join us for a special sneak screening and Q&A with the director, Eric Schaeffer, on January 22, 2015, at 7:30 p.m. The event is free, but tickets are required. The film opens at The Village East on February 6 to the general public.

Eric Schaeffer tells PFLAG NYC:

I’m passionate about breaking the mold of sexual and emotional convention in the pursuit of creating more unity in our increasingly fractured world. Being a ‘straight man,’ albeit one who admits to many things most straight men don’t, and living my life with a colorful spectrum of sexual and emotional tastes, desires and behaviors that don’t always seem to be accepted, I feel a duty to portray characters in my films who, like myself, admit to and accept without condition the parts of themselves and others that can be best described and must start being labeled as one thing and one thing only: human. That is why I make any film. That is why I was inspired to make this romantic dramedy. I hope it’s meaningful to you. Read more »
