Find out why gay journalist and activist James Kirchick was kicked off a Russian news program- and it wasn’t just because of his  rainbow suspenders.

And, what happens when one of the hardest working indie bands in Montreal wants to tour…with a baby. Find out how Thee Silver Mount Zion managed the dicey territory of parenthood and rock ‘n roll in Helene Klodawsky‘s new doc Come Worry With Us.
