2013 Diversity Day

DIVERSITY DAY: An LGBT Oral History Workshop
Friday, April 12th 7-9pm

Roxy Theater (718 S. Higgins, Missoula, MT) 

On Friday, April 12th, 2013 NCBI Missoula hosted a very special celebration of the three-year anniversary of the passage of Missoula's LGBT nondiscrimination ordinance. We presented Gregory Hinton's “DIVERSITY DAY: An LGBT Oral History Workshop”. The play was a staged re-enactment of actual public testimony adapted from the historic 2010 Missoula City Council hearing, with footage of the original hearing screened in silence as testimony was read. A discussion followed. Hinton’s Diversity Day has been presented at the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival and as a featured event of West Hollywood’s One City/One Pride Culture Series. NCBI was proud to host the Montana debut of the play in Missoula.
