The Time is Already is a short documentary film (32min) about the efforts of a dedicated group of LGBTQ activists to pass a bill to ban conversion therapy in Rhode Island. It’s about small group of people who came in angry and hurt after the 2016 election. It’s about people who were ignorant of the political process, but were determined and eager to do right and contribute. It is a story of what happens after you say, “What can I do to help?”

This is a documentary film shot in Rhode Island, in our own State House, with our own LGBTQ community, with our own legislatures. This is Rhode Island as Rhode Island gets.

The film is being shown as part of the 2018 Rhode Island International Film Festival. You can support local filmmakers and learn a little about the simple complexity of our state government.

Tickets are $10 and available here.

Friday, August 10, 8:30pm at the Woodman Center at the Moses Brown School, 250 Lloyd Ave, Providence, RI 02906.
