LEWISBURG, W.Va. – The Appalachian Queer Film Festival (AQFF) announces two free screenings of the film “The Campaign” in Charleston and Huntington, West Virginia. The Charleston screening will take place on September 5 at 7 p.m. at the Kanawha Players Theatre, located at 309 Beauregard Street in Charleston, West Virginia. The second screening will take place September 8 at Marshall University’s main campus in Smith Hall Rm. 154 at 7:30pm.

“The Campaign,” a film directed by Christie Herring, tells the story of the battle to defeat California’s Proposition 8 and defend same-sex marriage. Herring, whose film also will be shown at the AQFF, will lead a question-and-answer session immediately following the film.

The Charleston screening is sponsored by the Kanawha Players, and the Marshall University Political Science Department and the Sexuality Studies Program are sponsoring the Huntington screening.

    My husband and I were at the screening of “The Campaign” at Marshall University. The film resonated with us deeply. The simple cruelty that many people who have family or other loved ones who are in the LGBT community and the still voted yes on PROP 8 is sickening. We want to thank Christie for documenting the fight , determination, strength, and hard work everyone, including herself, had during this time and are still exhibiting. They brought attention to this hatred and discriminatory issue and thrust it to the forefront. They are incessantly working on behalf of the whole country to make sure that our rights are designated equal and made into law. They are truly the “Harvey Milk’s” of this time.
