Reproductive Justice and LGBTQA Film Festival

Breaking Out of The Social Closet

Co-sponsored by the LGBT Center of OC

The Reproductive Justice Initiative’s 2017-2018 film series Breaking Out of The Social Closet offers a nuanced examination of gender identity, celebrating the clear advancements and legal victories in recent years, while also exposing the painful costs of fighting stigma, shaming, and stereotypes.  It explores how sex and gender status continues to impact individual safety, civil and human rights, despite obvious advancements in marriage equality.   The series engages growing up trans, violence against the LGBTQA community, race and homosexuality, and vulnerabilities to mass incarceration, homelessness, and poverty.  Featuring talkback sessions with artists, parents, experts, and the community.
