ALASKA AIRLINES―Now Streaming “A Great Ride” In Flight
June 1 – July 31
ALASKA AIRLINES―In recognition of Pride Month, Alaska Airlines will partner with Frameline Film Festival to stream award-winning LGBTQ films in-flight through July 2019. Featured will be A GREAT RIDE, a 30-minute documentary about Bay Area lesbians confronting the challenge of aging with determination, dynamism, courage and humor. The film follows Sally, a retired women’s studies professor and activist living in a cabin in Northern California; Brenda, an African American political activist in Vallejo; and five residents of a Santa Rosa retirement community: two couples, Nancy and Marjorie and Sue and Patty, as well as Shirley, who is single.
In their youth, these women faced the difficulty of coming out. Now they are pioneers as they take on aging, with an independent and irreverent spirit and a heartening delight in living.
