Event Description

Bayard & Me is a short doc about how the openly gay civil rights activist Bayard Rustin, best known for organizing the March on Washington and advising Martin Luther King, adopted his partner Walter Naegle in the 1980s for legal protections. In this intimate love story, Walter remembers Bayard and how they had to work around the system in an era when gay marriage was inconceivable. He also reflects on the little known phenomena of intergenerational gay adoption and its connection to the civil rights movement.
From director Matt Wolf, an award-winning filmmaker in New York. His films include Wild Combination about the avant-garde cellist and disco producer Arthur Russell and Teenage about the birth of youth culture. His most recent shorts include HBO’s It’s Me, Hilary and The Face of AIDS for TIME Magazine.
