A SCREENING of Judas Kiss is one of the opening events Sunday, May 6, of Oregon State University’s Pride Week, featuring a Q & A with writer-producer Carlos Pedraza.
The free event is sponsored by the Rainbow Continuum, a student-run social and educational organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, questioning, and intersex students, and their allies at Oregon State University. It is also sponsored by OSU’s LGBT Alumni group.
Sunday’s event in Corvallis, Ore., is the latest in a series of campus screenings for the film, said Pedraza.
“The film has really resonated with younger viewers,” he added, “and we’re honored to have it included in OSU’s Pride Week lineup.”
Judas Kiss was the only gay-themed film to win an award last year from the Youth Jury at the prestigious Rhode Island International Film Festival. “It’s particularly meaningful to us that Judas Kiss resonated so well with students,” Pedraza said. “It asks questions about life choices and redemption that we wanted to appeal to many age groups.”
The movie screens at 7 p.m. at the LaSells Stewart Center in the Construction and Engineering Auditorium, followed by the Q & A session.
