On Friday, December 3, at 6 p.m., the Parrish Art Museum in partnership with the LGBT Network will present a screening of the film “Visibility” (2021, 30 minutes). The documentary presents intimate self-portraits of five elders in the Long Island LGBT community, and their journeys of self-discovery, alienation, pride, and the sea change of hope as they traversed through issues including the AIDS crisis, defining family, and marriage.

The screening, in person at the museum and available livestreamed, will be followed by a Q&A with the film participants. The event is free with museum admission and to members of the LGBT Network, but preregistration is required.

Produced by the LGBT Network, which is focused on creating and implementing solutions addressing challenges faced by the LGBT community, the film was edited by LGBT Network program coordinator, education and community organizing Adrian Stivala and chief program officer Kerrie O’Neill. “Visibility” features Michael Barcham, Georgie Hartman, Phil Hauser, Franz Jungi and Eve Weinberg. All will participate in the live Q&A panel on Zoom, moderated from the museum’s theater by Stivala.

The Parrish Art Museum is at 279 Montauk Highway in Water Mill. Visit parrishart.org to register. This indoor event requires proof of vaccination or a recent negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours. Medical-grade face masks must be worn at all times and will be provided to anyone who needs one.
