A handful of screenings were programmed in conjunction with productions of The Laramie Project, which made for thought-provoking discussions about how both the play and the documentary film shaped real people into fictional characters. Laramie remains a complicated and contradictory city located within a still deeply red and equally complex state in the mountain West. The measure prohibits “discrimination of any person based upon his or her actual or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity in employment, housing and public accommodations”. Laramie is the first city in Wyoming to implement such a measure and provide a process for gay and transgender people to file a complaint with the City if they believe they have been the subject of discrimination. The struggles around LGBTQ rights in Laramie and in Wyoming seems a waltz, one step forward, two back, another to the side, then forward again.
