Free Live Stream: Ahead of the Curve

The story of one of the most influential women in lesbian history you’ve never heard of and the impact her work continues to have today. Growing up, Franco Stevens never saw any representation of queer women—she didn’t even know it was possible for a woman to be gay. When she realized she was a lesbian, it changed the course of her life. In 1990, Franco created a safe place for lesbians in the form of Curve magazine. Her approach to threats and erasure in the ”90s was to lift all kinds of lesbians up and make them beautifully visible. The magazine helped build a foundation for many intersectional movements being led by today’s activists in the face of accelerating threats to the LGBTQ community. Decades later, as her legacy faces extinction and she reassesses her life after a disabling injury, she sets out to understand visibility work being led by an intersection of queer women today. Featuring Andrea Pino-Silva, Kim Katrin, Denice Frohman, Amber Hikes, Jewelle Gomez, Melissa Etheridge, and Lea DeLaria, and a score composed by the legendary Meshell Ndegeocello, Ahead of the Curvecelebrates the legacy of a movement while considering the agenda of its future.

Free Live Stream: RUTH: Justice Ginsburg in her Own Words

An intimate look at the prolific justice and her incredible rise to the U.S. Supreme Court The film tells the improbable story of how Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who couldn’t get a job despite graduating first in her law school class in a tie and making Law Review at Harvard and Columbia Law Schools, became an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court. It also reveals both the public and private sides of a resilient, resourceful woman who has survived the hostility of the profoundly male universe of government and law to become a revered Justice and icon for gender equality and women’s rights. The film is designed as an immersive experience through the direct words of Ruth Bader Ginsburg as a professor, advocate, Judge, and Justice from the 1970s onwards; through the use of evocative animation and intimate illustrations to visualize complex constitutional cases; by the insights of colleagues who have directly worked with or have been impacted by her forty years as a legal icon; and by using a rich original score by a Grammy-winning composer.

Holi Festival of Colors Spanish Fork

World’s Greatest Chant & Dance Party: Interactive Bollywood & Bhakti Dance, Mantra Bands, Dj’s, Yoga, Cuisine, Crafts, Color Throws on the Hour, Free Hugs, Lotsa Love Holi is the Festival of Colors, a traditional Indian holiday celebrated in our own innovative fashion. The Holi Festival takes its name from an evil witch who lived thousands of years ago. Her name was Holika. She had a boon not to be burned even if she stepped into fire. She misused this benediction to burn many babies by carrying them into fires. However, when she tried to do the same to a five year old Krishna devotee named Prahlad, she got burned instead, while Prahlad emerged from the fire unharmed. Prahlad\’s constant habit was to chant the names of God, Hare Krishna Hare Krshna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare / Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare. Thus taking shelter of the Lord through His Holy Names the Supreme protected him. This year, realizing that Holi has developed a national following especially among college festival-goers, we are preparing more parking and more colors (by far) than ever before. The music, the dance, the worship, the facilities — everything is being upgraded.

Tickets and items purchased are available for pick-up at the event. Unredeemed tickets purchased for previous Festivals of Colors that were postponed due to COVID-19 are redeemable at this event. Kids 12 and under are FREE.
