Join the First Parish Welcoming Congregation Committee for a screening of the PBS American Experience documentary Casa Susanna. The film is intended for adults. Arrive at 6:00 p.m. with a main or side dish to share in a potluck dinner, or arrive at 7:00 p.m. for just the film and discussion afterwards. Casa Susanna tells the story of a refuge in the Catskills that sheltered transgender women and cross-dressing men to live as their true selves in the 1950s and 60s.
At movie time, enjoy theater-style popcorn or a sweet treat from the “Give as You Choose” snack bar, where 100% of funds raised will be donated to OUT Metrowest in support of their work helping LGBTQIA+ youth in our communities.
