Details

Come out and enjoy meeting new friends, have a snack, and see a film from the queer cinema tradition together. The film this week is: Holding The Man.

From Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holding_the_Man_(film))
Holding the Man is a 2015 Australian romantic drama film adapted from Timothy Conigrave's 1995 memoir of the same name. It was directed by Neil Armfield and stars Ryan Corr and Craig Stott, with supporting performances from Guy Pearce, Anthony LaPaglia, Sarah Snook, Kerry Fox and Geoffrey Rush. The screenplay was written by Tommy Murphy who also adapted the memoir for the stage play.

From IMDb
Tim and John fell in love while teenagers at their all-boys high school. Their romance endured for 15 years to laugh in the face of everything life threw at it - the separations, the discrimination, the temptations, the jealousies and the losses.

We have a little motto: “Let’s put some feet to the street and actually meet and greet this week.” This is what the “meetup” concept is all about. We hope to see you there.
