August 24, 2013 - 7:30 pm
Steven Cozza, Tom Shepard.

Directed by Tom Shepard

Filmmaker Tom Shepard’s inspiring documentary examines the long-standing policies of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) prohibiting gay members.  The film profiles 13-year-old Scout Steven Cozza, an unlikely straight-identified activist for the rights of gays in scouting.  Viewed through the prism of the BSA’s recent decision to revise portions of its anti-gay policy, the film offers a fascinating glimpse of a struggle that once seemed futile.
