Between the Shades seeks to put faces to the letters that make up LGBTQ+ and how those letters have evolved and expanded since the Stonewall riots.  The film examines the immense power of labels and the transcendence of love.

No film can ever capture the immense diversity of the LGBTQ+ community, but it didn’t stop director Jill Salvino from trying.   “At the end of the day we all have at least one thing in common.  Everyone just wants to be loved,” says Salvino.

50 people, each with a connection to the LGBTQ+ community, begin this conversation by sharing their stories for this film, which has quickly become an audience favorite and a classic reminder that love is love. The film features Beth Malone (of Broadway’s Fun Home, a PFLAG National partner), actress Kathy Najimy, Democratic National Treasurer Andrew Tobias, along with many other faces you may not know yet, but you will.

“This heartwarming documentary about the LGBTQ+ community is a perfect way to wrap up your Pride” said the Los Angeles Blade about the West Coast Premiere of Between the Shades.
