SBS Dateline’s PRIDE UNDER FIRE  takes us through Louisville, Kentucky following the Pulse Night Club shooting. In this documentary we see a nation divided, personified in the town of Louisville filled with those celebrating Pride and reclaiming their parade, and those deeply embedded in gun culture and exclusion. In this report, we hear from Louisville’s contradictory community; from religious groups, nightclub owners, and queer people of color – to gun enthusiasts and proprietors all making sense of the world and their beliefs post the Orlando shooting.


After the screening, there will be a discussion on where we are as a community one-year after the Pulse shooting.
