Rockland — Out! As I Want to Be will host a Family and Friends Night screening and discussion Saturday, March 22, from 7 to 9:30 p.m. at First Universalist Church, 345 Broadway. Everyone is invited to celebrate spring and the new growing season with the new “Out Here” documentary, followed by a discussion with director Jonah Mossberg.

"Out Here" is a full-length documentary film created by the Queer Farmer Film Project, directed and spearheaded by Mossberg. Completed after four years in production, it looks at the experiences of queer farmers across the country and asks — what does it mean to be a queer farmer, is agriculture a safe space for queer people and what are the relationships between food production and queerness? It is the filmmaker’s dream that this project will give voice and visibility to queer people in agriculture and inspire a flagrant national discussion about gender and sexuality as they are related to our food system.

Donations of $5-$10 (or more) will support Mossberg's travel to and from Maine, as well as the programs of Out! As I Want to Be. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Out! As I Want to Be is an organization that supports and empowers lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered and questioning (LGBTQ) youth and their friends and allies younger than age 22. Out! sponsors twice-weekly drop-in programs in Rockland, on Wednesdays and Fridays. For more information, visit outmaine.org or email outmidcoast@gmail.com.
