Indiana native and IUP alumna Cindy Davies drew nearly three hundred people to Beard Auditorium to hear her speak at the Indiana LGBT Film Festival Sunday night, October 11, 2009. Davies, who played women's basketball her freshman year at Penn State under former coach Rene Portland, was at the festival in conjunction with the screening of the film Training Rules, a documentary focusing on homophobia in athletics.
The Indiana LGBT Film Festival continues at 6:00 p.m. next Sunday evening with two short subject films titled Kaden Later and Reunion. The feature film on October 18 is Hannah Free, produced by and starring Sharon Gless, who played Christine Cagney in the 1980’s TV detective show Cagney and Lacey.
The Indiana LGBT Film Festival is sponsored by the Indiand Cares Campaign, PFLAG of Indiand, IUP Pride Alliance, the IUP Department of English, and various other university departments and organizations.
