PARKERSBURG — Out MOV is sponsoring a community conversation with filmmaker Emily Harger, the director of “OUTSPOKEN,” from 8 to 10 p.m. today in the back room of the North End Tavern and Brewery, 3500 Emerson Ave.

Several local characters from the film also will be present to answer questions. The event follows a free community screening of the film at West Virginia University at Parkersburg Theater at 6 p.m. today.

“We are excited to offer the community a chance to discuss the documentary with Emily Harger in an intimate setting,” said Jeanne Peters of Out MOV. “This is also an opportunity to learn more about what is currently happening in the local LGBTQ+ community.”
