PRIDE Movie Night

it's PRIDE Movie Night at the Grand Marais Public Library, and we're showing Strange World. This animated film was nominated for GLAAD Media Award's outstanding film category. It features Disney’s first out, queer character in a lead role, Ethan Clade. Not only is Ethan accepted and loved by his family, but his queerness isn’t a plot point or used as a teachable moment.
