Tomorrow evening, Harlem Stage on Screen presents the world premiere of Thomas Allen Harris' new documentary film, Marriage Equality: Byron Rushing and the Fight for Fairness at Aaron Davis Hall in Harlem. The film tells the story of State Representative Byron Rushing, a straight LGBT civil rights ally, who fought successfully for same-sex marriage in Massachusetts.

The community dialogue scheduled to follow the screening is being billed as the largest discussion of same-sex marriage and people of color in the country.

Washington Post Editorial writer and MSNBC contributor, Jonathan Capehart, will moderate, with a distinguished panel including Alfonso David - Deputy Secretary of Civil Rights for Gov. Cuomo, Rev. Irene Monroe, Cathy Marino-Thomas of Marriage Equality New York, advocate David Wilson and others.

The screening is presented in partnership with Tribeca Film Institute, the Human Rights Campaign and Chimpanzee Productions
