    Global Virtual Pride Marathon

    Join Democrats Abroad LGTBQ+ Caucus for a day long Pride Celebration as we share our stories. View the schedule here (or below).

    Pride 2021: Sharing Our Stories / Equality Matters

    Democrats Abroad is celebrating June Pride month with a series of events, including a webinar marathon on June 20th, featuring speakers and events. 

    The webinar marathon is being organized and hosted by the DA LGBTQ+ Caucus, with the aim to educate Americans about issues impacting LGBTQ+ people and opportunities to provide greater protection through policy and legislation. A key focus will be on engaging members to share their stories. 

    Through the webinar, members will have the opportunity to learn how to effectively engage their congressional representatives to support equality legislation, including the Equality Act, which would provide protections in employment, housing, credit, education, public spaces and services, federally funded programs and jury service to LGBTQ+ people, and immigration reform.

    Program

    Time Title Speakers

    05.30 EDT

    11.30-12.00

    Let's talk about AAPI queer identity through a  discussion of Alice Wu's film The Half of It! A Netflix original movie, The Half of It received rave reviews from critics and tells the story of teenage Ellie Chu, who writes letters to her crush on the behalf of her classmate Paul in a queer retelling of Cyrano de Bergerac. As Paul and Ellie's friendship grows, the film explores the isolation of the intersection of queer and immigrant identity as well as the meaning of friendship.

    The aging LGTBQ+: Screening of Gen Silent

     

    Gen Silent is an award-winning documentary that follows six LGBT older adults in Boston, Massachusetts over a year as they navigate the paid and unpaid care system. Gen Silent discovers how oppression in the years before Stonewall still affects generations of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people with feelings of distrust and dangerous isolation. As we witness the challenges that

    these men and women face, we also see hope as each subject crosses paths with an impassioned professional trying in their own way to change an entire care industry.
