LEWISBURG, W.Va. (AP) - The inaugural Appalachian Queer Film Festival has announced its lineup for later this month.
The Lewisburg festival will feature two widely released films. They include the “Skeleton Twins,” starring “Saturday Night Live” alumni Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig. It will be screened Oct. 25.
The next night, the documentary “To Be Takei” will be shown. It stars George Takei, who played Mr. Sulu in the original TV “Star Trek” but is now known for his gay and civil rights activism.
Besides the screenings, the festival will also feature panel discussions.
Organizers of the film festival say they hope to break down stereotypes and broaden minds throughout Appalachia.
