Pasadena Screening of Dangerous Living

Please save the date for our June 28, 7:30 PM meeting in Pasadena (See sidebar calendar for location information). We will be screening the one-hour film, Dangerous Living: Coming out in the developing world,

Dangerous Living examines the struggles and triumphs of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in the Global South. It is the first documentary to deeply explore the lives of GLBT people in non-western cultures. The crew of Dangerous Living traveled to five continents to tell the heartbreaking and triumphant stories of these incredible individuals on film.

The persecution of gay men in Egypt attracted much attention from the western press. However, most occurrences of oppression of LGBT individuals around the world receive no media coverage at all. By sharing the personal stories of LGBT activists from other countries, Dangerous Living sheds light on an emerging global movement striving to end the atrocities against gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people.
A preview of the film is available here. Help us take action on behalf of LGBT people around the world!
