Join the Latinx Student Association, OMSE and GSW as we continue our four-part watch party series of Visions of Us: LGBTQ+ Latine Representation in TV & Film, a mini-documentary. This second event celebrates Hispanic/Latinx Heritage Month and LGBTQ+ History Month. We will watch Episode 1 of the short documentary and have a discussion on the representation of lesbian Latinx/Hispanic actors in TV and film.  

Visions of Us is a four-part digital documentary series that celebrates, uplifts and highlights some of the most groundbreaking queer Latinx characters and scenes in TV and Film, and the talent who brought them to life both onscreen and off. Stephanie Beatriz (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Steven Canals (Pose Creator and Director), Tanya Saracho (Vida Creator and Writer), Aurora Guerrero (Writer/Director of Mosquita y Mari), Wilson Cruz (My So-Called Life, 13 Reasons Why, Noah's Arc, Star Trek: Discovery), Garcia (Tales of the City) and more talent share their deeply personal journeys in bringing authentic queer representation to their work. Join us in uplifting the images, the artists, the stories, the visions of us. Produced by Con Todo, Netflix's home for Latinx/e storytelling, and directed by filmmaker Kase Peña, each episode amplifies stories under the LGBTQ+ umbrella.
