"Welcome!" a film that tells the story of how the Unitarian Church in Westport became a welcoming congregation to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people, will be shown Saturday.

The 7:30 p.m. screening is part of Reel Justice Films, a free film series at the church.

The people who were instrumental in bringing gay issues into the open and into public discussion locally are featured in the film. The Unitarian Church in Westport, 10 Lyons Plains Road, is home to the Rainbow Task Force, which created the Fairfield County Gay Pride parade. The film was directed and edited by Rozanne Gates, a member of the Rainbow Task Force since 1998.
