First Published      Last Updated Jun 24 2014 04:55 pm

Add another title to the slate of the Damn These Heels! Salt Lake City International LGBT Film Festival: A true story of a former Navy SEAL on a very different mission.

"Lady Valor: The Kristin Beck Story" is a documentary that tells of former Navy SEAL Christopher Beck, who as Kristin Beck goes "in search of life, liberty, and happiness — the American ideals she once protected in the military."

The film will screen Saturday, July 12, at 4 p.m. at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center. Beck will take part in a post-film Q&A session.

Individual tickets for the July 12 and July 13 festival screenings are now on sale at ArtTix, for $6 each (plus service charges). A 10-ticket pass is available for $45, and sponsorships are available for $150 and up.

Only passholders and sponsors can get into the opening-night film on July 11, "Compared to What: The Improbable Journey of Barney Frank," at which the former congressman and his husband, Jim Ready, will be taking part in a post-film discussion.
