Films promoting lifestyle diversity hits the screen on Saturday as the Kodiak High School Gay-Straight Alliance hosts its first film festival.

The free event happens on Saturday, May 17, 6 p.m., at the Gerald C. Wilson Auditorium.

“It’s a series of short films that aims to educate the community of the different identifies of the LGBT community,” said Sarah Lind, an advocate for the Gay-Straight Alliance. “This is a groundbreaking thing for the high school and the students.”

Lind says she works with the GSA with the aim of “promoting not just tolerance but acceptance.”

The films will last approximately 90 minutes in total and promises to be more than just lifestyle.

“It’s going to be fun and it’s going to be hilarious," Lind said. "Some of the films that we chosen are little bit lighthearted and so of them are a little more connected with the issues.”

As an alumnus of Kodiak High, I am proud to know that my school is as forward thinking as to the issues of the day and educating those who choose to be educated and enlightened about such an important issue as the LGBT community. I am proud of my school for having the foresight and courage to educate and not condemn.
