As Austin writes, “it was one of the most highly contested pieces of legislation in Kansas City history. It marked a turning point, after which discrimination against gays and lesbians could no longer be ignored, and it demonstrated how homophobia and the fear of AIDS were not only intertwined — they were inseparable.” More information at www.theordinanceproject.com

Also joining us is Jon Barnett, who is featured prominently in the film and was one of the founders of Act Up KC and the Human Rights Project, and was the first openly gay man to run for City Council of Kansas City, Missouri. Stuart Hinds, Curator of the Gay & Lesbian Archive of Mid-America (GLAMA) of UMKC shares how GLAMA offered source material and collaborated with Austin Williams on The Ordinance Project.

We’ll also talk with Savannah Rodgers, KC based filmmaker and artist-in-residence at the Charlotte Street Foundation. Savannah is a Board Member for Film Society KC, and a Programmer at the Slamdance Film Festival. In 2018, she was recognized with the Dandelion Award for Women in Film at the First City Film Festival and the Indie Spirit Award at the Bare Bones International Film Festival. Savannah’s short documentary debut DRAGTIVISTS won awards at the Tallgrass Film Festival and Twister Alley International Film Festival and will screen as part of Out Here Now, on Saturday, June 23, at 1:30 PM.

***************************
10:15am – Based out of Kansas City, MO, three young ladies join together to become OLIVIA FOX. This trio consists of Lauren Flynn, Tiffany Smith and Aubrey Callahan. They call their sound Folk/Pop with its unique marriage between classic folk instrumentation, vocals, and harmonies to modern programmed beats and synth pads. Their music is emotional and builds a foundation of tension and relief while the lyrics are honest, deep, and heart wrenching at times. All three members of OVFX sing and play multiple instruments that vary depending on the song. OLIVIA FOX is a fresh interpretation of a timeless sound.
