In October 2016 St. Albert United Church in Saint Albert, Alberta decided to celebrate the anniversary of becoming Affirming by welcoming the whole community—and supporting a new generation of LGBTQ and Two-Spirit leadership.
Camp fYrefly YEG with the University of Alberta, ISMSS and Calgary Sexual Health Centre will screen their documentary film “Over The Rainbow”; it premiered at the Calgary Fairy Tales Film Festival last May, as well as The Banff Centre for the Performing arts. It’s also available for screening by other Affirming ministries. Have a look at the trailer: https://vimeo.com/185158953
Jan Buterman, the transgender teacher that was recently fired from the St. Albert Catholic School Board, will be our special guest panelist of the night.
Edmonton’s Vocal Minority Chorus will be performing live music, as well as there will be a discussion panel following the screening. The director of the film, Msquared2 Productions as well as members of the cast will be featured on the panel.
Admission is free, but donations will be accepted in support of Camp fYrefly.
