On January 17th, 2012, Raise Up, the southern Indiana program advocating for LGBT acceptance and education, held the first screening of a three part event titled, "Raise Up the Curtains: LGBT Film Series" to give the community insight into the lives of LGBT families through film. The first film, Prayers for Bobby, told the story of a gay man who commits suicide after years of rejection from his religious mother. After the death of her son, the mother attempts to find an understanding between her son's sexuality and her faith. After the event, an open forum lead by Raise Up directors, Tommy Craven and Sarah Barry, allowed audience members to ask questions from the film and bring up current issues in the community with LGBT rights. This video highlights some portions from the panel that included: Graham Brinklow, Janet Schnell, Rhea Murray, Reen Gutgsell, and Emily Mullens.
