Surviving the Silence: Col Thompson & Barbara Brass

MY LGBT PLUS and the Fresbians are proud to bring Col. Patsy Thompson and her wife Barbara Brass to Fresno! 

A 32 year story of sacrifice and commitment to each other and their country come to life in the new film Surviving the Silence. Col. Patsy Thompson and Barbara Brass candidly share how they wrestled with heart-wrenching choices in the public and private, hiding their relationship in their own home, speaking in code on the phone during appointments ot the Pentagon and abroad, struggling to preserve their love and career. Col. Thompson will talk about her toughest assignment: presiding over the board that dismissed Col. Grethe Cammermeyer from the military for being a lesbian. 

We will have appetizers and refreshments. Come meet this brave couple and see trailers of their upcoming film. A Q&A and meet and greet will follow the storytime.
