The IU South Bend Civil Rights Heritage Center and Center for a Sustainable Future, in partnership with The LGBTQ Center, presents a Work-in-Progress screening of the new feature documentary, Ahead of the Curve. The filmmakers are looking for feedback to help finish this film and are especially interested in hearing from folks identifying as LGBTQ+ women, 18+ years old, from a range of backgrounds/identities, though all are welcome!

Please visit the film's website for more info:
www.curvemagmovie.com

About the film:
With a fist full of credit cards, a lucky run at the track, and a passionate need to bring her community together, Franco Stevens launched Curve, the world's best-selling lesbian magazine. Decades later her legacy faces extinction, prompting Franco to revisit and understand Curve's impact on queer visibility today.
