Over 200 people registered for the event, which featured a screening of the film via a virtual watch page, followed by a panel discussion and Q&A via Zoom. Panelists included Shalini Kantayya, filmmaker; Debbie Carter, M.D., associate professor, Department of Psychiatry, CU Anschutz; Kandrea Wade, Ph.D. student, Information Science, CU Boulder; and Morgan Scheuerman, Ph.D. student, Information Science, CU Boulder.

The panel discussion was hosted by Edward Cannon, associate clinical professor, CU Denver, co-chair of the LGBTQ+ committee, and Lisa Flores, associate professor, CU Boulder, and associate dean of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.

The committees sincerely thank all the participants for engaging in a thoughtful and respectful dialogue. Please watch this space for future film screenings around timely and important topics that matter.
