LGBT Resource Center Film Series: Major! and Happy Birthday, Marsha!

Major! and Happy Birthday, Marsha!
Major! directed by Annalise Ophelian, 2015
Happy Birthday, Marsha! directed by Reina Gossett and Sasha Wortzel, 2017

The LGBT Resource Center and Spurlock Museum present a film series in tribute to those who fought for justice in the LGBTQ+ community in the United States. The subjects of these films are often not recognized in relation to the events at Stonewall in June 1969, especially the political-raising events that took place prior to Stonewall. The films follow a chronological arc, and each will be followed by a discussion.
