From Groundspark:

This is your chance to spend the evening with THREE Oscar winners–Debra Chasnoff, director of Straightlaced (winner of best Short Documentary, “Deadly Deception”), Dustin Lance Black (Winner, Best Original Screenplay, Milk), and Bruce Cohen (producer of Milk; winner, Best Picture, “American Beauty”) who said:

“Watching Straightlaced rekindled both the outrage and the hope that came with bringing Harvey Milk’s story to the screen. This new documentary is a rare gem that provides a forum for young people to speak eloquently about the courage it takes to break out of the box, live authentic lives, and stand up for justice. I think Harvey would be proud of the kids in Straightlaced, and I urge young and old alike to support GroundSpark’s campaign to get this film screened in schools and communities across the country.”

You won’t want to miss out on what promises to be a fantastic evening.
