Join PFLAG & ITVS for 'Ask Not' in D.C.

PFLAG is proud to partner with ITVS for two special screenings of Ask Not in the nation's capital.

Produced and directed by Johnny Symons, Ask Not looks at the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" ban on lesbian, gay and bisexual troops, and includes interviews with LGBT veterans and men and women who have been directly impacted by the law. Ask Not explores the tangled political battles that led to the infamous "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" law and reveals the personal stories of gay Americans who serve in combat under a veil of secrecy.

If you live in Washington, D.C., or will be visiting in May, make plans to join us at one of these screenings:

Sunday, May 17th @ 3pm
Washington D.C. Jewish Community Center
1529 16th Street, N.W.

Sunday, May 31st @ 5pm
Busboys & Poets
1025 5th Street, N.W.

Space is limited - please reserve your spot now by emailing asknot@communitycinema-dc.org, or call (202) 939-0794.

As part of each screening, ITVS Community Cinema will convene a panel discussion on "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," featuring experts on the issue, and diverse viewpoints on the law. PFLAG is proud to present the "family perspective" on this important topic, with our field & policy manager, Rhodes Perry, speaking at the May 17th event, and Steve Ralls, PFLAG's director of communications, speaking on May 31st.

Don't miss this opportunity to see the documentary film Variety has called "Potent, even-handed . . . engrossing . . . brisk and smart." RSVP now to join ITVS Community Cinema and PFLAG for a special screening and discussion in Washington, D.C.
