Join us on Thursday, 3 May from 7 — 9 pm for a special community screening of «Jay» at the Loft Cinema.
Free. Open to the public. Followed by Q & A with Jay Kyle Petersen, Father Tom Picton, Christina Laukaitis, MD/PhD, Nick Duarte (filmmaker), and Jamie A. Lee, PhD (Project Director, Arizona Queer Archives).
«Jay» is a documentary about spirituality, reality, perception and, ultimately, perseverance and hope. A glimpse into the extraordinary and complex life of an abstract Tucson artist with an even more abstract past. Jay Kyle Petersen is a painter. Of soul energy, of deceased pets, of guardian angels and celestial bodies. He was also born intersex and raised female in rural 1950’s Minnesota. From there, his story gets interesting. Sponsored by the Institute for LGBT Studies, University of Arizona
