Forbidden: Undocumented and Queer in Rural America

Moises Serrano, now 27, came to America with his parents from Mexico when he was just 18 months old. Born on Mexican soil, Serrano is not a legal immigrant of the United States, but that's not the only challenge this young man has to face—he's also a gay man living in North Carolina. Director Tiffany Rhynard documents Serrano's crusade to expand the rights of undocumented people trying to survive in America, and unite the immigration reform and LGBTQ movements in Forbidden. A portrait of a confident but unassuming spokesman for a controversial cause, Forbidden is a lens into one person's struggle for human rights. The film screens on April 28 at 6pm at the Family Partnership Center in Poughkeepsie. Chronogram Editor Brian K. Mahoney will interview Moises Serrano after the film, followed by a Q&A. Forbidden is presented by the LGBTQ Community for Racial Justice. Facebook.com/LGBTQRacialJustice/
