Diversity and Inclusion: Looking Into the Heart of LGBT/Queer Representation
In collaboration with The Los Angeles LGBT Center
This conversation is part of our Community Partner Panel Series. Outfest Fusion believes that the way to break through the issues of access and bias is to center the voices within our community to discuss the issues that they are facing. The panels iN this series were created by some of our amazing community partners and will be available for free throughout the Festival. This conversation was curated by the Los Angeles LGBT Center!
ONLINE AVAILABLE APRIL 17 – 20
