Screening and Discussion of "CURED"

In celebration of PRIDE month, the Metro DC & Virginia Chapters of the National Association of Social Workers are hosting a private screening of CURED, an award-winning documentary that highlights a pivotal but little-known moment in LGBTQ history when activists rose up to challenge a formidable institution — and won a crucial victory in the modern movement for LGBTQ equality and dignity. There will be a live virtual screening of the 55-minute film, followed by a panel discussion featuring the project’s co-director and Rev. Magora Kennedy, one of the activists featured in the film.

Described as “fascinating” (Hollywood Reporter), “riveting” (The Queer Review), and “one of the best documentaries of this or any year” (British Film Institute) — and nominated for an Emmy Award in 2022 — CURED takes viewers inside the David-versus-Goliath battle that led the American Psychiatric Association to remove the diagnosis of homosexuality from its manual of mental illnesses in 1973. Watch the trailer for the film.

While this powerful film highlights a little-known story from the past, its lessons are profoundly relevant today. Ultimately, the documentary celebrates the pathbreaking contributions of LGBTQ pioneers while demonstrating that even in the face of seemingly insurmountable obstacles, lasting social change is possible.


Upon completion of this screening and discussion, attendees will earn 1.5 Category I Contact Hours, including 1.5 LGBTQ Hours.
