At 7 p.m. Thursday, July 16, the Arkansas Times, Little Rock PFLAG and Central Arkansas Pridefest will host a special screening of Little Rock director Mark Thiedeman’s "Sacred Hearts, Holy Souls” to benefit Out in Arkansas, the Times’ coming LGBT publication. Tickets are $25.

A coming-of-age story about a gay teenager at a Catholic boarding school, “Sacred Hearts” has been widely praised: It won the Charles B. Pierce Award for Best Film Made in Arkansas at the 2014 Little Rock Film Festival, and Philip Martin of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette called it one of last year’s best releases. Filmmaker magazine has called Thiedeman “a star,” and The Hollywood Reporter said he was a director to watch.

Following the screening, Hendrix College professor and Arkansas Times columnist Jay Barth will host a panel discussion with Thiedeman and local LGBT leaders about the fight for equality in Arkansas post-Obergefell. A reception in the lobby of the theater will follow with complimentary drinks and light appetizers.

Out in Arkansas will be a daily online publication focused on the LGBT community in Arkansas. To donate or for more information, visit arktimes.com/outinark.

To purchase advance tickets, call Kelly Lyles at the Arkansas Times at 501-492-3979.
