IT’S FINALLY PRIDE MONTH! In celebration of LGBTQIA+ pride and progress, we are thrilled to honor Gregg Araki, a true icon of queer cinema. Araki’s groundbreaking films fearlessly explored queer narratives, challenging societal norms and amplifying marginalized voices. Join us as we delve into his inspiring body of work and discover the lasting impact he has made on the world of cinema. We’VE also curated a list of local Pride events happening in and around Los Angeles, so you can fully embrace the joy and spirit of Pride Month. Let’s come together to celebrate love, diversity, and the journey towards acceptance!
The LAFS Library proudly stands as an ally with the LGBTQ+ community, embracing diversity and acknowledging the ongoing journey towards acceptance and positive change. In light of the current political and societal climate surrounding queer identities, we want to affirm our unwavering support and will commit to providing a safe and inclusive space for all individuals. We will always strive to amplify queer voices, stories, and resources. May this month be a reminder that every individual deserves to be respected and celebrated for who they are. Together, let’s foster understanding, acceptance, and love!
