SOMA Pride hosted a screening of this amazing documentary of an extraordinary man. BROTHER OUTSIDER is about the life and work of Bayard Rustin—a visionary strategist and activist who has been called “the unknown hero” of the civil rights movement. A disciple of Gandhi, a mentor to Martin Luther King Jr., and the architect of the 1963 March on Washington, Rustin dared to live as an openly gay man during the fiercely homophobic 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. The Q&A included the film's co-director, Bennett Singer, and Bayard Rustin's partner, Walter Naegle, Robt Seda-Schreiber, Chief Activist, Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice and was moderated by the Coalition on Race’s Audrey Rowe.
