El Canto Del Colibrí a Discussion of Love

Join the Latino Resource Center and the Gender and Sexuality Resource Center in a screening and discussion of the documentary film "El Canto Del Colibrí" a film where immigrant Latino fathers across the U.S. recount the impact of their children’s coming out as part of the LGBTQIA2S+ community; reaffirming their love and family bonds. 

Much like the seldom-heard song of the hummingbird, the voices of Latino fathers are rarely heard in addressing LGBTQ issues. This film aims to amplify their voices. This film addresses political issues about LGBTQ families, social oppression, shared responsibility and acceptance of LGBTQ people as members of Latino families.

Movie is in Spanish with English subtitles. 

Discussion to follow in English.
