Imagine a gay president. Robert Mapplethorpe's Instagram. Poppers that prevent STD's. LGBTQ senior citizen resorts in every city. A sexual revolution that never stopped, and a generation who lived without fear of loving. Imagine what could have been possible if artists, activists, pioneers, and immigrants were not taken by AIDS.
Fathers is a web series of short documentaries that explores these questions, weaving history, real-life events, and fiction to create a vision of a queer utopia.
Join us for an intimate Day of the Dead screening of all current episodes of The Fathers Project with Mexican filmmaker Leo Herrera.
Fathers is a community-funded project, filmed at queer gatherings and meccas across the US, and featured on NPR, Slate, Vice, National Review, Huffington Post and the Emmy-winning KQED Documentary "Behind-The-Lens: Leo Herrera Imagines a World Without AIDS."
Fathers is a fiscally sponsored project of the GLBT Historical Society and is currently still in production. The screening is free, we will be taking donations at event and at iftheylived.org.
