Message from the Director

Between the Shades seeks to put faces to the letters that make up
LGBTQI and how those letters have evolved and expanded since the
Stonewall riots. The film examines the immense power of labels and the
transcendence of love.

We invited fifty people, each with a connection to the LGBTQI
community, to begin a conversation by sharing their stories and we
hope audiences will continue this conversation long after they’ve left
the theater.

“Between the Shades” features many voices, among them: Beth Malone (of
Broadway’s Fun Home), actress Kathy Najimy and Democratic National
Committee Treasurer Andrew Tobias. No film can ever capture the
immense diversity of the LGBTQI community, but it didn’t stop us from
