Special Washington, DC Screening

In Partnership with SAGE and DLA Piper

Wednesday, September 28th at 6:00 p.m. ET

Please join SAGE for a private screening of the award-winning documentary CURED, which highlights a pivotal but little-known moment in LGBTQ history when activists rose up to challenge a formidable institution — and won! Described as “striking” (USA Today), “riveting” (The Queer Review), and “one of the best documentaries of this or any year” (British Film Institute) — and recently nominated for an Emmy Award — this film takes viewers inside the David-versus-Goliath battle that led the American Psychiatric Association to remove the diagnosis of homosexuality from its manual of mental illnesses in 1973. Check out the trailer for CURED, which attracted 1.5 million viewers during its U.S. broadcast premiere on PBS in 2021 on National Coming Out Day.

When: Wednesday, September 28th
6:00 p.m. ET: Reception with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres in the Atrium
7:00 p.m. ET: Screening of the 55-minute film
8:00 p.m. ET: Panel discussion with Aaron Tax, Director of Government Affairs at SAGE, and CURED co-director Patrick Sammon
