On Friday, December 3, at 6 p.m., the Parrish Art Museum in partnership with the LGBT Network will present a screening of the film “Visibility” (2021, 30 minutes).

The documentary presents intimate self-portraits of five LGBT elders in the Long Island LGBT community, and their journeys of self-discovery, alienation, pride, and the sea change of hope as they traversed through issues including the AIDS crisis, defining family, and marriage. The screening, in person at the museum and available livestreamed, will be followed by a Q&A with the film participants. Advance ticket purchase with pre-event registration is required. The event is free with museum admission and to members of the LGBT Network.

Produced by the LGBT Network, which is focused on creating and implementing solutions addressing challenges faced by the LGBT community, the film was edited by Adrian Stivala (LGBT Network program coordinator, education and community organizing) and Kerrie O’Neill (chief program officer). Visibility” features Michael Barcham, Georgie Hartman, Phil Hauser, Franz Jungi and Eve Weinberg. All will participate in the live Q&A panel on zoom, moderated from the museum’s theater by Stivala.
