Project Description

AHA Committee on LGBT History Sponsors Virtual Screening and Live Q&A

Virtual Screening Window – June 1 to 12

Live Q&A – June 6 at 7pm ET

In honor of Pride Month, the American Historical Association’s Committee on LGBT History will host a live panel discussion of CURED on June 6th at 7 pm ET featuring the project’s co-directors and one of the trailblazing activists who shares her story in the documentary; Dr. Dan Royles will moderate. CURED — which won the AHA’s 2021 John E. O’Connor Film Award — will be available to stream online from June 1 through 12. Register for the free screening window and for the Zoom discussion.

Described as “fascinating” (Hollywood Reporter), “riveting” (The Queer Review), and “one of the best documentaries of this or any year” (British Film Institute) — and the winner of Audience Favorite awards at NewFest and Frameline — CURED takes viewers inside the David-versus-Goliath battle that led the American Psychiatric Association to remove homosexuality from its manual of mental illnesses in 1973. The film spotlights a diverse group of activists who achieved this epic victory in the movement for LGBTQ equality. Watch the trailer for CURED.

We hope you’ll be able to join us to watch and discuss this inspiring new film!
