Though the original selection for this month's Uncomfortable Brunch, Straw Dogs, was a really smart pick for the Fourth of July weekend, the events at Pulse necessitated a switch. Instead, Uncomfortable Brunch is partnering with the GLBT Community Center to present the 1999 biopic Boys Don't Cry. The film tells the tale of Brandon Teena, a trans man who was beaten, raped and murdered when his birth sex was discovered by two male acquaintances. And sadly, we still have to deal with that kind of fear and violence 17 years later. Hilary Swank, who plays Brandon, won the Academy Award for Best Actress for the fim, and co-star Chloë Sevigny was nominated for Best Supporting Actress. All of the proceeds from the screening will be donated to the Center, so do your best to sell this screening out. 

Noon Sunday, July 3 | Will's Pub, 1042 N. Mills Ave. | uncomfortablebrunch.com | $10-$12
