Thomas Allen Harris' new ground breaking documentary short, "Marriage Equality: Byron Rushing and the Fight for Fairness," has its Boston premiere on Friday, July 29th, 7:30pm Roxbury Film Festival @ the Museum of Fine Arts.  Harris' film tells the story of State Representative Byron Rushing, a straight LGBT civil rights ally, who fought in partnership with diverse coalitions for same-sex marriage in Massachusetts. The documentary provides an in depth look at the issue of Marriage Equality from the perspective of communities of color.

Following the screening there will be a Q & A with director Thomas Allen Harris as well as a conversation with Byron Rushing who will discuss 'where are we now' seven years after the passage of same-sex marriage in Massachusetts.  There will also be a lively community forum featuring the interview subjects from "Marriage Equality" including; Cambridge City Councilor E. Denise Simmons, Arnold Sapenter, Rev. Leslie K. Sterling, David Wilson, Gary Daffin, and Rev. Irene Monroe. Forum Topics - What's next? Where do we go from here? Is there a new openness?   Rep. Linda Dorcena-Forry will moderate panel - all are welcome to participate!
