Banking for Every Business
TYWTAL focuses on a Boston-based group of LGBTQ youth of color as they band together and dare to be 'out' on stage about their lives and their loves. The cast of True Colors: OUT Youth Theater transforms their struggles into performance for social change. The film's cast members include a transgener teenager, Alyssa, who is kicked out of her home, a devout Christian, Chi, who challenges his church's homophobia, and a genderqueer individual, Ayden, who likes to wear masculine clothing, even as they model dresses on the runway. After the Boston Marathon bombs explode yards from their rehearsal space, the troupe becomes even more determined to share their stories of love to help their city heal.

Upcoming Films for the 2020/2021 Season
Showing independent films - from directors under represented in the mainstream (women, people of color, the LGBTQ+ community) - JP Movie Night is a community-focused organization whose mission is to bring people of all backgrounds together through a love of great film.
JPMN was founded by two neighbors - Shailah and Jason - who regretted that JP lacked a place for folks to gather to watch movies in the neighborhood. So, in late 2018, they started presenting films to the public, primarily movies that were made and owned by the filmmakers themselves.
JPMN screens films on the first Saturday of every month, Sept.-June, starting at 7pm and ending the screening by approx. 8:30. The audience is encouraged to stay for conversation after the movie. Filmmakers are usually present for Q&A and a lively dialogue, greatly enhancing the movie-watching experience.
