Film about Gay Latinos in L.A. Premieres This Weekend at Long Beach QFilm Festival

As LGBT visibility increases in the media, it is important that the diversity of the LGBT community also be reflected. This is why the new and first-of-its-kind documentary, Gay Latino LA: Coming of Age is important: it shows LGBT issues through the lens of class, race, immigration status, among other things.

The documentary will have its official U.S. premiere this Sunday, September 16, 2012, at the 2012 Long Beach QFilm Festival.

The film follows the lives of three young gay Latino men dealing with issues of acceptance, mental health, love and relationships, family, homophobia, and coming out. Full disclosure: I am one of the three subjects in the documentary

Check out the official trailer here:

The film will be screening this Sunday, September 16, 2012 at 12:30PM at the historic Art Theater located at 2025 East 4th St., Long Beach, CA 90814.  For more information, please visit www.gaylatino.la.
