Human Rights Campaign to Screen Documentary on LGBT People in American South


The Human Rights Campaign is proud to present a public screening of deepsouth in collaboration with the launch of HRC’s Project One America. The film shines a light on a region in crisis and the often-ignored issues concerning LGBT communities of color in rural America. Beneath layers of history, poverty and now soaring HIV infections, three Americans redefine traditional Southern values to create their own solutions to survive.

The public film screening will be held this Thursday, June 26, 2014 at 7:00P in the evening at HRC Headquarters as part of the Equality Talks series. Following the screening is a Q&A and panel discussion with director Lisa Biagiotti, cast members Joshua Alexander and Cedric Sturdevant, and HRC Director of Project One America, Brad Clark. The panel will be moderated by Andrea Levario, HRC Senior Public Policy Advocate.

The documentary has been screened 60 times – 40 times at the invitation of communities in the South – in schools of public health, law and social work; annual conferences and film festivals, local theaters, government agencies, African-American churches, and Historically Black Colleges and Universities have also hosted the film.
