Forbidden: Undocumented and Queer in Rural America
Event Details:
Join us for the screening and discussion of Forbidden: Undocumented and Queer in Rural America. Forbidden is a documentary film telling the story of Moises Serrano, an undocumented gay man and activist who grew up in rural North Carolina. Following the film, Chronogram editor Brian Mahoney will be facilitating a discussion and audience Q&A with Moises. There will also be an opportunity to meet activist organizations in the area and learn about their work. You can learn more about the film at forbiddendoc.com

About Moises:
When Moises was 18 months old, his parents risked their lives bringing him across the US/Mexican border to rural North Carolina in search of steady work. Years later, as an undocumented gay man full of ambition and talent, he is barred from attending community college, faces limited job opportunities, and regularly deals with prejudices against both his brown skin and sexuality. At age 21, he is on the brink of suicide. Out of his darkest moments he discovers his life passion: his role as an activist. Forbidden begins with Moises fighting for immigration reform, LGBTQ rights, and justice for all people.
