UNIDAD: Gay & Lesbian Latinos Unidos Premiere Screening Panel

The Los Angeles Film School and PBS SoCal/KCET Present the Premiere Screening of the extended PBS Broadcast version of “UNIDAD: Gay & Lesbian Latinos Unidos” documentary film, followed by a Q&A with Filmmakers: Director Gregorio Davila, Executive Producer Roland Palencia, Producer/LAFS alumn Mario J. Novoa. Gay and Lesbian Latinos Unidos (GLLU) was founded in 1981, only a dozen years after the Stonewall Rebellion and only a couple of years before the HIV/AIDS pandemic began to ravage LGBTQ communities. GLLU was the greater Los Angeles area’s first major Queer Latin@ organization, and the film chronicles events surrounding GLLU at a pivotal time in the history of LGBTQ equality, women’s rights, and civil rights movements that shaped the destinies of GLLU’s impact on various communities for decades to come.
