THE CENTER HOSTS GAY LATINO L.A. FILM SCREENING AUG. 10 FOLLOWED BY Q&A WITH STAR ALEX ALDANA
The Centerpiece, a queer arts and culture series at The Center, continues on Aug. 10 from 1 – 3 p.m. with a free film screening of the documentary Gay Latino L.A. followed by a Q&A session with one of the film’s three main characters, Alex Aldana.
Gay Latino L.A. is a docu-drama voyaging into the adulthood of three young men dealing with issues of family, machismo, religion, culture and life in Los Angeles. The cast – an immigrant hipster from Mexico, a Berkley graduate and Salvadoran activist, and a Mexican American trying to escape gang life – intimately open up about the obstacles and triumphs in their lives.
The Centerpiece is a series of free arts and culture events thoughtfully assembled for Nevada’s LGBTQ and allied communities. Boasting a broad array of subject matter and artistic medium, each Centerpiece will offer a diverse yet accessible glimpse into the compelling and often complex world in which we exist. The series is rooted in LGBTQ themes, but all events are meant to be enjoyed by the larger community.
