Lunchtime screening and discussion with sexual health educator and filmmaker Dulce Garcia, whose film With Conviction, features femme lesbians of color including poet Jewelle Gomez.
Dulce is a fierce Queer Xicana Femme born in Mexico City and raised in East Los Angeles, where she evolved from a high-risk youth to an outspoken community activist. She received her Master’s in Ethnic Studies from San Francisco State University. Blending book smarts with street smarts, Dulce’s passion and commitment to serving underrepresented and underserved communities is evident through her years of work in cross-cultural and multi-gendered organizations, especially those serving queer youth of color. Her short film With Conviction won the 2011 Queer Women of Color Film Festival’s first ever Audience Award.
