Veteran documentarian and founder of Envisioning Global LGBT Human Rights Organization, Nancy Nicol has consistently focused on the struggle for LGBT rights in Canada. Her new film shifts to India to examine a similar struggle there.

No Easy Walk to Freedom portrays an attempt by diverse groups in India to overturn Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code. The law, as historians point out in the film, is a remnant of British colonialism and is used to harass, jail and turn LGBT Indians into second-class citizens.

Activist Anjali Gopalan (one of Time Magazine'’s 100 Most Influential People, 2012) lends her thoughts, expertise and inspiration, drawing from her work with the Naz Foundation in India.

While the topic is grim and the film is abundant with frustrating legal setbacks, No Easy Walk to Freedom remains surprisingly optimistic, focusing on the connections built by vastly diverse LGBT groups.

Activists, AIDS educators, NGO workers, historians, trans* rights groups and lawyers share their insights and join together to fight this antiquated law, proving the power of solidarity and grassroots organizing.

Screening will be followed by a panel discussion with the director and guests.
