Two student organizations at UW-Sheboygan are planning a film screening on Friday, May 4 at 7pm. The Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) and Latin American Student Organization (LASO) are sponsoring the documentary titled, Forbidden: Undocumented and Queer in Rural America. Admission is free to the award-winning 2016 film that follows Moises Serano, who grew up queer and undocumented in Yadkinville, North Carolina.
Forbidden presents a more personal perspective on the topic of immigration and challenges long-held stereotypes about undocumented people, while highlighting the far-reaching effects of U.S. immigration policies. Directed by filmmaker Tiffany Rhynard, the moving story also illustrates some of the stark realities faced by LGBTQ minorities growing up in the rural South. A discussion follows the film.
The film showing takes place in room 6001. UW-Sheboygan is located at One University Drive in Sheboygan. For directions to the campus or more information, visit www.sheboygan.uwc.edu
