Completed after four years in production, the documentary Out Here looks at the experiences of queer farmers across the United States. It examines what it means to be a queer farmer, whether agriculture a safe space for LGBTQ people, and the relationships between food production and queerness. It features Wild Fermentation author Sandor Katz; Christopher Bolden-Newsome of Philadelphia; and Denise Whitesides and Courtney Skeeba of Homestead Ranch in Lecompton, Kansas.
Out Here will be screened at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 15 at the U.S. Bank Conference Theater in the Ohio Union, 1739 North High Street. A discussion with filmmaker Jonah Mossberg will follow.
The screening is presented by the Agroecosystems Management Program at The Ohio State University in partnership with the OSU Sexuality Studies Program; GLBT Alumni Society; Multicultural Center; Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Department; DISCO Grad Caucus; and GradQueers.
