Hear from AJ Molder (Millie) who has a deep love for the script and character she plays - "I was so excited when I first read the script for ‘Thanks to Her’ because the character of Millie was someone who felt very familiar to me. I was lucky enough to attend a school that strives to give its students the space to explore who they are in a safe environment where self discovery was always fostered and supported. I had many friends and classmates who were exploring and finding themselves in roles outside of society’s typical expectations. This film is not about just being gay or straight but exploring and acknowledging all parts of yourself as a person even if that means exiting your comfort zone. ... Even in this progressive age there is always work to be done and I’m so happy this film can contribute to the conversation."

Sunday, March 7 at 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
