Inlaws & Outlaws

Virginia is for (Movie) Lovers — and Equality

Virginia

Beginning October 28th, the first leg of our Virginia Outlaws Tour brings Inlaws & Outlaws back to six cities in Virginia —
from Blacksburg to Williamsburg.

Filmmaker Drew Emery kicks off the tour with the Hearts + Minds Campaign's 400th community screening at the 6th Annual Gay in Appalachia gathering at Virginia Tech.

"This tour is so important to me," says Emery. "I went to school in Virginia, fell in love with Virginia and came out in Virginia." He notes that, given the current state of the gay rights movement in Virginia, the tour is both timely and topical.

Drew Emery"On one hand, there's been terrific progress towards the understanding of gay & lesbian people in so many places throughout the state. On the other hand, there remains a concerted effort to deny basic civil rights to LGBT people and, sadly, that effort is now being lead by the state's own governor and attorney general. Groups like Equality Virginia make a huge impact but, in order to succeed, they need a broader level of support from the community-at-large. That's what the Hearts + Minds Campaign is designed to do — bring the stories of Inlaws & Outlaws directly into communities to spark dialogue and inspire change."
