UCLA Screening of ‘Welcome to Chechnya’

Nov 17 @ 6:00 pm-9:00 pm

Join the Gay Sexuality and Social Policy Initiative (GSSPI) for a free screening of Oscar- and Emmy-nominated documentary film “Welcome to Chechnya.” This searing and intimate documentary follows the work of activists in the Russian republic of Chechnya who risk their lives to combat the deadly anti-LGBTQ torture campaign that has escalated in the country. After the screening, GSSPI co-directors Dr. Ian Holloway and Alex Garner will hold a panel discussion with LGBTQ researchers on issues of criminalization of same-sex sexual behavior in Europe and around the globe, and how that ties into the groundbreaking work GSSPI is doing on gay sex and sexuality.

Per UCLA policy, face masks are mandatory at all indoor events. Read the policy here: https://covid-19.ucla.edu/guidance-for-events-and-performances/
