As June 2019 approaches and the world prepares to mark the 50th anniversary of Stonewall, two producers from America’s longest-running LGBT cultural affairs television series, In the Life, will talk about five decades of action and activism. In this event, documentary-style segments chosen from the In the Life Collection will be screened. In the post-screening discussion, John Catania and Charles Ignacio will share personal stories about their own journey in this movement. Brian Leung, long-time advocate and activist for LGBT rights in Hong Kong, will also join the discussion to share his views.
