Earth Day Film Screening - April 23

Posted: April 3, 2014

Earth Day Film Screening -- Goodbye Gauley Mountain:  An Ecosexual Love Story" followed by Q&A with the Film Makers

Wed Apr 23 7 pm

LGBTQ Center of Southern Nevada, 401 S. Maryland Parkway, Las Vegas, NV 89101

UC-Santa Cruz art professor & environmental activist, Beth Stephens and sex educator & performance artist, Annie Sprinkle aim to make the environmental movement a little more sexy, fun and diverse by shifting the metaphor of "Earth as mother" to "Earth as lover." Their hope for this movie is, that in addition to being a compelling story about the devastation of mountain top removal (MTR) coal mining in West Virginia, it will help engage new groups in addressing environmental issues. After viewing this film, you just may discover you are an ecosexual, too!
