Human Rights Campaign (640 Rhode Island Ave., N.W.) hosts screenings of two LGBT-themed films this week.

“Appropriate Behavior,” presented by Reel Affirmations, screens Friday with showings at 7 and 9:15 p.m. The film tells the story of a bisexual Persian woman, played by Desiree Akhavan from “Girls,” who fights to get back together with her ex-girlfriend in Brooklyn. There will be a “chef’s tasting” by Tasteful Creations from Chef B after the 7 p.m. screening. General admission tickets are $10 and VIP tickets are $25 and include one complimentary cocktail or drink, one popcorn and VIP seating and recognition. For details, visit

“Families are Forever,” a documentary that follows a Mormon family with a young gay son, will be screened on Tuesday at 4 p.m. Producer Dr. Caitlin Ryan and the mother and father of the son, Wendy and Thomas Montgomery, will also have a panel to answer audience questions about the film and their experience as parents to a gay Mormon teenager. Admission is free. For details, visit
