Première of Rainbow Reflections

2014, January 9, Thursday 6:30-8:30pm
Little Bean Coffee Bar
417 King Street West, Unit B1, Kitchener

Join us for the première of Rainbow Reflections, a feature-length documentary of the history of the LGBTQ Community in the Grand River Region. Listen in as personal stories and reflections from local people bring queer history to life in often moving and funny ways. Tickets are $5 at the door or pay what you can and all proceeds benefit SPECTRUM, Waterloo region's rainbow community space. Our history isn't taught in school. Come, listen and learn, as we celebrate the contributions of our fabulous, local rainbow community. There's even a dance party to follow the screening if you'd like to stay and enjoy some music, drinks and socializing!
