West Shore Film Series presents documentary "Light in the Water"
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
LIGHT IN THE WATER chronicles the birth and life of West Hollywood Aquatics Club, the first openly gay masters swim team. Founded to train for the inaugural Gay Olympic Games in 1982, the team is another lens through which to study LGBTQ+ history in America. Through archival footage and intimate interviews with members of the club, some of whom are record-setting swimmers, Light in the Water celebrates athletes that happen to be gay. Constantly returning to the theme of water, Light in the Water sheds light on the inclusive team, which today still provides shelter and strength for queer athletes, and presents how these men and women have become a renowned force fighting injustice in the world of competitive sports. After the film, Todd Urban, founder and first Coach of the Cleveland Aquatic Team, will be on hand to comment and answer questions.

The film series is free and open to the public (donations gratefully accepted).
