Date & Time: Wednesday, February 5 from 7:00-9:00pm (screening and Q&A)

Location: UB Center for the Arts, Screening Room

Forbidden: Undocumented and Queer in Rural America is a feature length documentary about an inspiring young man whose story is exceptional, although not unique. When Moises Serrano was just a baby, his parents risked everything to flee Mexico in search of the American dream. Forbidden to live and love as an undocumented gay man in the country he calls home, Serrano saw only one option—to fight for justice. 

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the director, Tiffany Rhynard, and the subject of the film, Moises Serrano.  For more information, click here.
