It's true: Pride is one of the seven deadly sins. Unless you're gay, in which case pride is a celebration of self and sexual identity that comes around once a year or so. Those who prefer their pride indoors should peek inside room 106 of the University Center (5000 Holmes) for five hours of films celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Stonewall Rebellion in New York City. Gay rights have come a long way since queers and queens barricaded the go-go bar in downtown NYC and refused to let police inside. The first few films of the day will be about life before Stonewall. At 5:45 p.m., the theme switches to "After Stonewall," and at 7:30, films all fit the phrase "Out of the Past." Everything is free.
