What it’s like to come out to families and friends.


There’s an over-abundance of sad coming out stories everywhere. But that’s not the reality my friends and I have known. I wanted to share a real, positive counterpoint to all that negative media by sharing stories of how accepting and open-minded the world can be. — PJ Hase

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
