Diversity and inclusion show on the big screen

ASTORIA — The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Council screens “The Year We Thought About Love.” The movie features young gay, trans, lesbian and queer youth and allies who share their experiences coming out and navigating as part of the LGBTQ community. The DEI Council is collaborating with the Q Center and has connected with the Gay-Straight Alliances at the local high schools.

The goal is to provide a platform that centers LGBTQ voices, identifies local support resources and helps allies understand how to support LGBTQ youth. The movie will begin at 6 p.m., with a panel discussion to follow in Columbia Hall, Room 219. This is a free event and open to the public.
