GSA to screen film directed by alumnus

Kenneth Schrupp

The Gay Straight Alliance will  screen the film “GBF,” directed by alum Darren Stein ’89, at the Downtown Independent theater on May 8. The film revolves around two gay high school boys struggling to improve their social status through becoming popular girls’ gay best friends. The screening will be held with the cast and crew of the film.
Stein, a member of the Harvard-Westlake LGBTQ Network, organized a November prescreening of GBF for the GSA, still a work in progress at the time, with a review session afterwards.
“It had its official premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival and is already a success,” GSA leader Patric Verrone ’13 said. When we saw it earlier this year, we loved it and Darren seemed to take everything we had to say to heart. I can’t wait to see the finished product.
