Following its world premiere at Outfest 2018, the critically acclaimed Here TV Original documentary, A Long Road to Freedom: The Advocate Celebrates 50 Years hits theaters this month – including a Q&A and screening tonight in North Hollywood!
Directed by Billy Clift and produced by Emmy-nominated actor-producer David Millbern, the documentary will have a 20-city theatrical release including Los Angeles, Palm Springs, and Seattle.
Narrated by Laverne Cox with music by Melissa Etheridge, this moving feature-length documentary focuses on watershed moments in LGBTQ history through never-before-seen footage and engaging interviews with former NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt, Caitlyn Jenner, Don Lemon, Gloria Allred, Gavin Newsom, Dustin Lance Black, Margaret Cho, Armistead Maupin, Bruce Vilanch, Greg Louganis, DeRay Mckesson, Candis Cayne, Guillermo Diaz, and many more.
Starting with the Black Cat Riots, the film covers Stonewall, the disco sexual revolution, the AIDS crisis, marriage equality, and the trans movement to present day.
“This documentary lays out a clear path of resistance that resides in the DNA of the LGBTQ community,” says Millbern. “It demonstrates that with courage and resilience, we can conquer any foe. As bad as things may seem currently, we have been here before. We hope that this film not only educates but serves as a call to action for a new generation of activists.”

Let’s face it, when you have a murderer’s row of incomparable talents like Kristen Chenoweth doing a duet with Sean Hayes from their Broadway teaming in the Zadan-Meron production Promises Promises, followed by her lilting solo of “Til There Was You” from The Music Man, in which she fought to stop the tears; then Amber Riley bringing down the house with a soaring “Home” from The Wiz; directly into Broadway superstar Bernadette Peters and her poignant rendition of the Sondheim song “With So Little To Be Sure Of” from Anyone Can Whistle; into Audra McDonald’s inspiring and powerful “Climb Every Mountain” from The Sound of Music ; and followed shortly by Jennifer Hudson and choir’s roof-raising Hairspray anthem “I Know Where I’ve Been” — with all receiving standing ovation after standing ovation — then you know you are witnessing something very rare and special in this business.
Viola Davis, the brilliant Oscar, Emmy, and Tony award winning actress, has done an interview with PrideSource and in it talks about her journey to LGBTQ acceptance, finding her power, and about why she is done with playing maids.
But the part of the interview that jumped out to me the most was when she explained how the sexual fluidity of her How to Get Away With Murder character came to be:
“I had everything to do with that. And so did (creator) Pete Nowak; I can’t leave him out. I really have to give him credit for that too. But yeah, absolutely. And also, “I Am Jazz”: I was watching that one night. I love that show. But I was watching that one night and (trans TV star and model Jazz Jennings) was playing in the closet with one of her friends who was a trans teenager, and it was just great. They were talking about who they see themselves with in the future, and they were like, “Whoever, you know. I’m open. I’m open to a boy, I’m open to a girl.” And they started talking about just the attributes of the people they wanted to be with.
That transformed me more than anything. I thought, “That is the greatest thing in the world,” and I thought that that was a great idea for Annalise because Annalise is so damaged, so traumatized that what if she just said, “I’m just open to love”? God, think about what we can explore there.”

Over the weekend, I saw Jessica Jessica Parker’s new movie Here and Now which I would have to proclaim an interesting failure. I didn’t totally buy her as a doomed jazz singer but I still love watching her, as always.
But with the Sex and the City movie franchise now officially dead (thanks a lot Kim Cattrall!), SJP has to move on which she has with her current HBI series Divorce which has been renewed for a third season.
In this video, SPJ talks about some of her most famous film roles which include L.A. Story, Honeymoon in Vegas, and Hocus Pocus, among others.
