"Freak Show" at the Egyptian Theatre

DeKalb County Pride is excited to present a FREE showing of the Netflix film Freak Show. This heartwarming and poignant coming-of-age story follows the journey of Billy Bloom, a gender-bending teenager who challenges the norms of his conservative high school and embraces his own identity and self-expression.

After the screening, there will be a panel discussion featuring local LGBTQ activists and allies who will reflect on the themes of the film and share their own perspectives and experiences. The panel will explore topics such as gender identity, self-acceptance, and the importance of creating safe and inclusive spaces for LGBTQ youth.

This event is a great opportunity to celebrate diversity and promote acceptance and understanding in our community. Join us for a night of inspiring film and engaging conversation!

No RSVP or registration required.
