National Center for Lesbian Rights Virtual Screening
National Center for Lesbian Rights is excited to invite you to a private virtual screening of the award-winning new documentary CURED, which highlights a pivotal but little-known moment in LGBTQ history when activists rose up to challenge a formidable institution — and won! The film will be available to screen online from September 24th – 30th. There will also be a live virtual Q&A about the film on Wednesday, September 29th at 5:30 pm PT.
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.
AARP is proud to be a sponsor of CURED’s Outreach and Engagement campaign. This support has allowed the filmmakers to launch an ambitious campaign to amplify the reach and impact of this documentary in classrooms, communities, and educational institutions prior to its broadcast premiere on PBS in October. CURED will be broadcast on PBS as a part of the acclaimed documentary showcase, Independent Lens, on October 11th — National Coming Out Day — at 10/9c (check local listings).
We hope you’ll be able to join us to watch and discuss this inspiring new film!
