One of the leading pieces of documentary evidence in favor of the expansion of the Human Rights Ordinance has been Six Words.
This documentary will again be aired on local television: at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, on WJXT TV 4.
This 40-minute documentary, “Six Words,” that Jimmy Midyette from the Jacksonville Coalition for Equality described as “principally about the 2012 effort … as we look forward to what comes next.”
The film intertwines a variety of narrative techniques. Civic leaders including John Delaney, Audrey Moran, Preston Haskell, and Steve Halverson discuss at length the necessity of an expanded Human Rights Ordinance.
The film also includes testimony from young men who had faced the kind of issues that those who don’t fit into heterosexual norms encounter.
Those issues include everything from being rendered homeless, to not being able to tell family.
The time has been paid for, which removes any argument that “equal time” be presented. However, what is clear is that a large swath of Jacksonville that may be less than familiar with the issues will be more so if they stay tuned to WJXT after the evening newscast wraps.
