Description

The Roxy Theater is bringing back its Out at The Roxy film series, a selection of films curated to highlight stories featuring the LGBTQIA community, hosted in partnership with EmpowerMT.

“Good Kenyan girls become good Kenyan wives,” but Kena and Ziki long for something more. Despite the political rivalry between their families, the girls resist and remain close friends, supporting each other to pursue their dreams in a conservative society. When love blossoms between them, the two girls will be forced to choose between happiness and safety. 

Out at the Roxy sponsored by Bikers Against Bullies. Rafiki sponsored by the University of Montana African-American Studies Department.
