Penn State Celebrates Diversity and Inclusion

Penn State Wilkes-Barre’s Spring ’17 Film & Discussion series followed the development of the LGBTQ movement in America through a combination of Hollywood films and independent productions.

Certified practitioners lead discussions on areas related to LGBTQ issues following each week’s film screening. The series began with the documentary “After Stonewall,” and weekly discussions covered topics such as the changes Stonewall brought, stereotypes in film and internalized homophobia and the stigma, fear and perceptions of main stream society about the LGBTQ community.

Films included:

  • Before Stonewall
  • Children’s Hour
  • Boys in the Band
  • But I’m a Cheerleader
  • The Danish Girl

Check back in early fall 2017 for the next Film & Discussion Series announcement.
