Tony Award winner Alan Cumming, who stars in the film "Any Day Now," takes part in a panel discussion following a screening of that film Dec. 13 at the LGBT Center in New York.

The screening, presented by The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center and GLAAD, is scheduled to begin at 7:30 PM.

Also taking part in the panel are Ellen Kahn, director of the Family Project at the Human Rights Campaign, Shawn Bradia and Rene Ortiz. The panel will be moderated by Steve Majors, communications director of the Family Equality Council.

"Any Day Now," which will hit theatres Dec. 14, "is a powerful tale of love, acceptance and family," according to the film's website. "When a teenager with Down syndrome (Isaac Leyva) is abandoned by his mother, a gay couple (Alan Cumming and Garret Dillahunt) takes him in and becomes the loving family he's never had. But when their unconventional living arrangement is discovered by authorities, the men are forced to fight a biased legal system to save the life of the child they have come to love as their own. Inspired by a true story from the late 1970s, 'Any Day Now' touches on legal and social issues that are as relevant today as they were 35 years ago."

The Center is located at 208 West 13th Street. For more about the film, visit
